StreetLife "Virtual" Algarve Experience - 1 June to 30 September.










Last year, two of the StreetLife team..... Christine and Lisa, came up with the great idea of a sponsored virtual swim of the English Channel. If you'd like to know more about this event, please have a look at the Press Releases.  This year, they have excelled themselves and come up with another brilliant idea to raise funds for StreetLife, as well as encourage a bit of activity in all age groups and lift our spirits after months and months of lockdown.  Join them on their StreetLife Virtual Algarve Experience and “travel” along the coast from Vila Real to Cape St Vincente. Have fun and raise much needed funds for StreetLife.  If you'd like to know more, click here for  information about the routes and how it works.  We have also prepared larger maps so that the route can be more easily seen.


Sign up now for this challenge by completing our online entry form or send an email to

If you'd like to see who's entered so far and how far they're planning to swim, cycle, run or walk go to our Page of Fame.

                                                                             Let’s start “walking” for StreetLife ….


We were so proud to announce our 500th Sterilisation in April......

now on to No 600!!!

Something that warmed our hearts ....

What a lovely surprise to see a "Thank you" post from four of our "sterilisation success stories" - Estrelinha, Popita, Pitucha and Violeta!  This makes it all worthwhile... something to make our hearts smile.  Our sincere thanks must go to ALL of our StreetLife supporters - we have made a difference and could not do it without you!

StreetLife Newsletter - June 2021 ....

There has been so much happening at StreetLife...... despite Covid!  Big news is that the organisation "Make a Bid..... Make Difference" made an unexpected and very generous €400 donation to StreetLife's sterilisation programme.  Our StreetBuddy programme continues to make huge inroads into our requirements for sterilisations, raising around €3'000 per year.  Our quizzes always generate support as does the StreetSaver scheme.  Of course, there's much more in the Newsletter but suffice it to say that your support and contributions have helped to avoid 275'080 unwanted puppies..... and the associated suffering and cruelty!  We're also attaching a poster with more information on an amazing offer from Prime Wine!

Street Story on Sterilisation ....

Just to once again provide an illustrative back story to our constant drive to communicate the importance of sterilisation, we'd like to describe a situation that is just one example of the dire straits we find ourselves in due to ignorance and lack of appropriate planning.  Recently, we were contacted by 2ndhandfourfooters for help.  Please click here to read about how two timeous interventions would have prevented 13 sterilisations!  If you'd like help with sterilising your pet, please complete and submit our online application form.

Did you know that you can also be a StreetSaver with only an empty jar!  Check out our StreetSaver page to find out how to proceed.   

THANK YOU for being there for us and our local dogs... to date, we have sterilised 500+ dogs.  We could not do this without you!

Saved by a Salt Container..... a great story!

StreetLife has always said never underestimate the power of a coin and this proves it!  Pam & Ken have been saving coins as StreetSavers in an empty salt container which they kindly handed over to StreetLife several days ago.  We were amazed to find €41.02 inside.  


This salt container has come to our rescue in two ways. It will help sterilise one dog.... which will reduce the number of unwanted puppies & strays in our local area ... and it has helped StreetLife achieve our €500.00 target for our 500 April Appeal.  It bears saying again... 

NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF A COIN and in this instance... never underestimate an empty salt container.

"STAY AT HOME SUPPER HONESTY" QUIZ NIGHT - Saturday, 14 August.  As this is currently our only fund raising event, we're so grateful for those who've continued to support us.  Without the income from these quizzes, our sterilisation efforts would be severely curtailed.  It seems that new guidelines will allow up to 10 friends per table outside so it's possible for teams to meet up for a supper, using technology to “hook up” with another group of members who are in a different location but also enjoying a meal together sipping wine! Remember to let Brian know if you'd like to attend - brbeckwith2000@yahoo.comClick here for the poster and more information.

We had 46 players and 7 teams and managed to raise £230.00. Once again, we had a few players joining us from Portugal, South Africa, Switzerland and Utrecht University in Holland. This proves you can be anywhere in the world to take part  What would we all do without technology? Many friends were able to get together for supper, either in a restaurant or at home and joined in the fun. All keeping safe and following rules.  Our thanks must go to our teams and to Brian and Christine for the organisation skills they tirelessly bring to these quizzes.  Click here for more information.

FRENCH COOKERY WORKSHOP No 3 - Sunday, 6 June.  

There were 7 of us being shown by Jean how to prepare and cook salt baked veg; boning and cooking quails; making fresh tagliatelle and preparing a puff pastry top for the soup ... not forgetting the dessert.

Just to aid concentration, Neil decided that a glass (or two) of fizz was required to increase creativity..... mmm!  After the class a group of 12 sat down for lunch.  This workshop raised €100.00 and we offer our sincere thanks to Neil and Jean Adamson for their kind and much appreciated support.
