Just a quick note to say that the total is being boosted by bits and pieces still coming in and has passed €8000. This is more than double the anticipated amount. A substantial sum has already been passed to the Bombeiros for the purchase of face masks, personal radios and tracking devices, none of which they currently have in sufficient quantity for everyday needs.

A formal presentation etc will be taking place in the not too distant future.

From Balai Bowls Club chairman Richard King - Well we did it – we have raised just over €10000 this year for the Bombeiros, thanks to a collection pot at the Wander Inn pushing the total this year to €10,055!!!

We thank all those who contributed, sponsored and took part themselves.

The formal presentation of the monies raised at the 24 hour bowls marathon took place at the club earlier today.

One picture below, there will be more at http://www.albufeirabowls.com/News-and-Events/news-and-events.htm on Wednesday. The cheque represents the money raised from the 24 hr bowling marathon, €8022, plus €930.80 raised through spiders, swearbox etc. We had already donated €1103 earlier this year thus bringing the total to €10055.
