Royal British Legion lunch with a difference

ROYAL BRITISH LEGION LUNCH WITH A DIFFERENCEOur latest Royal British Legion Portugal Branch lunch was a bit different this time – we were very fortunate to enjoy a fabulous wine tasting at Quinta do Tor.

Quinta da Tor is set in the hills just outside Loulé and the beautiful surroundings were only surpassed by the quality of the wines.

Whether you’re an adventurous wine connoisseur or a quaffer, you couldn’t help but enjoy the wines not forgetting delicious tapas served with them. The event was well attended with a mix of RBL Members and supporters and some holiday makers all of whom made a point of saying it was a well organised and most enjoyable time.

Our next event is taking place at Ponte Romano’ in Silves on Thursday 29 June 2023 at 12:30. You will be served with the Portuguese couvert of Olives, Bread, Butter, Pâté and those delicious carrots with garlic and olive oil (Mmmmm) then there is a choice of Jardinière (a typical beef stew) or Bacalhau com natas (Cod in Cream) – as always there will be a vegetarian option (booked in advance).
All wine, beer and soft drinks are included in the lunch. Then, just to make the day complete, popular music to listen, dance or sing to will be provided by ‘Steve on Sax’.

The cost of the event is 23€ RBL members & 25€ non-members and there will be a prize draw. As always, the event is open to everyone – you don’t need to be a member to come along.

To book please contact Stephen: bland.sg@gmail.com

At that event, there will be a prize draw to support the Royal British Legion Poppy Apeal. However, what we really want to do is grow the membership. It costs around £23 a year – as well as the financial and social benefits you get for that – you are supporting such a good cause and you are part of a community. But most importantly, you will help provide support to the Armed Forces’ community and their families – they have done so much for us, it would be good to give something back. If they were needed to protect us tomorrow, they would, let’s be there for them today.

Wherever you are, please consider supporting us. Contact our membership secretary Stephen Bland at rblportugalmembership@gmail.com who would be delighted to hear from you.
