Along with his friend, Bob Bennie they played Lawn Bowls continuously for 24 hours. The two men were sponsored in order to raise funds for the bombeiros in Tavira. Fellow players from Pedras da Rainha bowls club joined them throughout the day and night to maintain the pace of play and to introduce fresh conversation.

Bob and Graham would like to thank the Pedras management, their photographer Elspeth, members who played on the rink with them, everyone who made a donation, including members of East Algarve Walking Football. Special thanks to Mark and Tanya Fox for their help and support in fund raising and to Clive and Lorraine from the ‘Old Barrel’ in Conceição.

A total of €2,480 was collected which was used to purchase two tablet computers, a power drill and charger and safety torches.
