"Birthday boy is playing at 6pm so come and cheer him on"

The last thing I need is laughter from the cheap seats. Big smile

Seriously, if you can spare an hour or two, come and meet the people and give us your money.

The money raised is being used to buy face masks for each fireman (currently each mask is shared between 6 & 8 firemen!!!)
They are also buying personal tracking units so when a fireman goes into dense smoke in a forest or building and gets into difficulties the controller can send help immediately to the right area. When a forest fire can be over many acres this is a massive time saver and could save lives

As Tom said thank you to all who have contributed so far but we would be grateful for any extra donations
Thanks Richard

Thought it was a bit sparse Embarrassed. Had to make a visit to Bombeiros to appease Grandaughter regarding fire engines. Where we were lucky enough to meet some very nice accommodating people.

Hi all

I am delighted to confirm that Balaia Bowls Club raised €7966.30 for the Albufeira Bombeiros at our 24 hour bowls marathon. This was a magnificent achievement and our thanks are due to all those that generously donated to this worthy cause.

This is in addition to over €1100 we gave them earlier this year making over €9000 year to date.

Tonisdad - yes they are a great bunch there - I hope to take my grandson there when he's a bit bigger to see real fire engines!!!

Thanks again for your support and if you fancy trying bowls pop along to Balaia Golf Village and have a go. Details on www.albufeirabowls.com
