Over €2,000 was raised for the Wolf Valley Charity Fund during the annual Vale do Lobo Christmas Market, held last Saturday.

With more than 1,500 visitors and over 60 exhibitors, the 2017 Vale do Lobo Christmas Market was deemed by organisers as the most successful to date.

Visitors from across the Algarve helped to create a festive atmosphere at the annual event.

Exhibitors delighted visitors with stalls selling everything from gourmet food products to unique Christmas presents, while local singing groups, performers and even a magician entertained everyone, both young and old, throughout the day.

During the event, €2,100 was raised for the Wolf Valley Charity Fund, with the money being used to help local needy causes.

Vale do Lobo CEO, Diogo Gaspar Ferreira, said: “The Christmas market this year surpassed all expectations with more visitors, exhibitors and entertainment than ever before. We would like to thank everyone who worked so hard during the event and for the generosity of visitors and exhibitors in supporting the Wolf Valley Charity Fund.”

The Algarve Resident was again media sponsor, alongside both Infralobo E.M. and Loulé Council as official partners.

The Christmas Market marks the beginning of the festive season in Vale do Lobo where there will be entertainment, golf competitions and more throughout the month. The resort will be finishing off the year with a fireworks’ display over the cliffs to welcome in 2018 with a bang.

The next Vale do Lobo Charity Christmas market has already been scheduled to take place on Saturday, December 1, 2018.
