Surprising the Lagoa Bombeiros With Some Gifts

You may remember a short while back that a photograph I donated to the “Alerta de incêndio florestal” Fine Art Auction to raise well needed money for the Bombeiros reached an amazing €150.

The following day I was contacted by Debby Burton (Alerta Chief!) to tell me that word had filtered down that the Bombeiros who assisted with the carrying of the artwork to and from the stage during the auction wanted the photograph but was out of their budget to bid. Without a thought, I offered a framed print to donate to them to hang on the walls of the Lagoa station.

We have been waiting for the same shift staff to be at the station and this afternoon was the time to turn up with Debby & husband ‘Bertie’ along with Bomberios Chief Gabriel to surprise them with a framed print. I also took along 2 smaller prints from the same day. It was an honour to present these prints to these incredibly hard working people who put their lives at risk to protect the lives of many others!

(If you are wondering who took the first photo, well done to my partner Emma who took charge of the camera!)

Just as we were chatting, we had a quick reminder of the work that is carried out by the Bombeiros as an alarm call went for an Ambulance

The 3 photos that I donated are shown below, with of course, the main large one being the first.
