A total of twenty-eight members, associate members, and guests enjoyed a festive holiday lunch this afternoon at CERCICA. A total of 210 euros was raised through the event to donate to this most worthwhile charity.

A special thanks to Anne Reilly for bringing the Christmas crackers (containing the colorful paper crowns) and mini pies for us from the UK!

Before lunch we shopped in the garden shop, a recommended place to buy garden and indoor plants and gifts and then explored the art room.

The tiles we painted in the workshop were ready for collection.

International Women in Portugal

Quote from Manuela “Last night's Christmas Special pub Quiz night was a whopper – what a way to bring down the curtain! As the saying goes, better to quit while you are ahead than to go out with a whimper.” Yes we were all dismayed when Hans announced this was the last quiz night.
The quiz ended with Hans playing George Harrison's 1970 song "All Things Must Pass" to say farewell. The Beatles always did have the knack for cool lyrics. And everyone was on their feet to sing a rousing chorus of “For they are jolly good Fellows”
It was a full house with even a team on the stairs and one group being turned away. A massive €435 was raised for Casa da Soupa Berçária. Since we adopted this charity in 2015 an estimated €4,000 has been raised at the quiz nights and an estimated €8,000 over the 9 years the quiz has been running.
IWP thanks Manuela and Hans for all their hard work, fun, “chirping”, entertainment, whacky round prizes, and super winner and raffle prizes and raising money for Charity. We will miss you.
