    Story

    Eight years ago our Dad and his wife left their busy lives here in the UK to fulfil their dream for a more relaxed and simple way of living. They bought an old run down house with all the money they had, with potential to build a home for themselves and for a place for the grandchildren to visit. Dad and Abi have worked hard over the years to build what they had achieved, bit by bit the house started to take form.
    They are kind hearted, easy going people who have never been materialistic just happy with each others company, a couple of quid in their pocket to get by and surrounding themselves with great friends and a loving family. This is all they needed to survive and be happy.
    On Saturday the 17th of June 2017, Portugal was hit by the worst forest fire they had ever experienced, many people have lost their lives, some losing their home and many more injured. Fortunately Dad and Abi were safe as they had come to visit family here in the UK. Sadly everything they owned and worked for over the eight years and memories that they have made over their life time has been destroyed by the fire. Dad and Abi have never asked for much, this is why we feel we need to help by asking people to donate what they can to help our parents rebuild their lives and start making new memories.

      Hi all its been a while I know but so much has gone on over the last few weeks. Dad and Abi are now home in Portugal waiting on some answers. When I get news of their plans I will update you. Our Sarah held a coffee morning a few weeks ago which was a great success by the sounds of things they had a great time, so thankyou to all those who attended. Sarah, me and a few friends and family are climbing the three peaks in Yorkshire to raise some more funds, if people would like to sponsor us just make a donation to this page. Cheers guys x x x x x

      Hi guys, thank you so much for your donations we are overwhelmed with the outcome so far. We have raised £170 over the last two Sundays by walking up Rivington were people payed a donation to join in, what a beautiful day it was too, the sun was shinning and the kids had a great time. Then today we did a car boot, thanks to friends and family who donated the items we sold. This was a lot of fun! (except for the 4.30 start). Sarah is holding a coffee morning this Friday too, check her facebook to find out more. Once again thank you! x
