About this trip

Join our Spring in the Air Cat Charity Walk, to help raise funds for the Mr No Ears Cat Haven's external project "Silves Street Cats".


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. Donations received on the day, 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.

Itinerary

Cat Charity Walk
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.

Coffee/tea and cake will be served after the walk and you will have an opportunity to make new friends and connections face-to-face.

I found joy in cooking again at Figs on the Fungo. It gave me a push to take up my Ottolenghi cookbooks. Without these workshops, I would never have made tahini and humus myself, which are much tastier than the ones you buy in the shop. Cheryl and Graham make you feel right at home in their cosy kitchen and are the most friendly and flexible persons. It's cooking without stress and meeting new nice people. Lunch together on a lovely terrace with an astonishing view and a heavenly dessert from Laura (their daughter) on top! I am already looking forward to the upcoming Ottolenghi inspired Brunch workshop.

We had a super fun day on this Ottolenghi inspired workshop. It was a chance to learn some new cooking skills and try new Mediterranean-inspired recipes. We enjoyed meeting other like-minded cooks and sharing a lunch together. I'd highly recommend Cheryl and Graham's Figs on the Funcho enterprise.

Hosts Cheryl and Graham are super friendly and welcoming. The workshop feels more like a group of friends getting together such is their openness to share their beautiful home.
