Spring in the Air Cat Charity Walk

Cheryl and Graham are leading a walk to help raise funds for the Mr No Ears Cat Haven’s external project “Silves Street Cats” charity. Money raised will go towards organising adoptions and taking care of cats that can’t be re-homed due to age and disability.

The name of the charity’s project, Mr No Ears Cat Haven, was named after a white cat in Albufeira that had his ears removed due to cancer. They received money from sponsors all over the world and here in Portugal to make this operation possible.

The charity is more like a Hospice as they look after many cats that suffer serious illnesses and injuries. They love them and provide a safe and happy environment for the cats.

Walking Details

The out-and-back walk, starting from Figs on the Funcho, will follow the path along the river Funcho and pass through pine and cork forests before reaching the church perched on the hill. The hill top has bucolic vistas of the Algarve’s rural countryside where cattle are raised and animals hunted. The walking route is shared with the shepherd and as it is the lambing season we may meet his flock of sheep and cute lambs.

Walking distance is approximately 6km and will take about 1 hour to complete. This is a moderately easy walk except for the 180 meter incline that leads up to the church, however, you can opt not to do it and wait for the walking group to return. Also there is the incline, on your return, just before reaching the entrance to the road that leads to our location, Figs on the Funcho.

Event Details

Date: The walk is usually scheduled in February.  
Time: 11h00 – 14h00
