The Portuguese Federation of Cyclotourism and Bicycle Users (FPCUB) launches the Bicycle Solidarity Campaign with the objective of raising donations for the acquisition of foodstuffs, which will be donated to the Parish Council for social support in the vicinity, in Arroios, in the city of Lisbon. In the impossibility of taking a solidarity bike tour, we cannot help but join in our solidarity and thus appeal to this support that will allow us to help those who need it most in this difficult phase.
The campaign runs until 12 noon on April 16.
Non-perishable food items will be purchased, for example: rice, spaghetti, pasta, tuna, sausages, cereals, water or juices.
Give your contribution and help us support this cause.
