This page will contain details of fund raising by the Club in support of the Albufeira Volunteer Fire Brigade - 'Os Bombeiros de Albufeira'

In 2016 almost €6,000 was raised through a mixture of fund raisers, donations and fines. Wrong bias anyone?

24 HOUR SPONSORED BOWLS MARATHON SATURDAY 16th AND SUNDAY 17th SEPTEMBER

Club members will be taking part in a 24 hour bowls marathon starting at 2pm (1400hrs) on Saturday 16th and ending at 2pm (1400hrs) Saturday 17th.
Floodlights are being supplied by the Bombeiros (local Volunteer Fire Brigade) for the night sessions.
The goal is that sponsorship of the club as a whole to complete the course will raise as much as we can for the Bombeiros.
 A sponsor form can be downloaded and printed here - will open in a new window or tab. Please complete it so even if you are not playing you can still help raise some money.
Please come along if you are visiting, say hello and make a donation! Any queries to Alison Wooding or Richard King - contact information here.
