“Yesterday at the Almeria Tenpin Bowling Centre in Arboleas, Sharron and I organised the annual Cancer awareness day. We raised funds for Walk for Life who do an amazing job supporting local people suffering from cancer. They a group of wonderful ladies helping tirelessly people in our community.
WE RAISED AN FANTASTIC TOTAL OF 1,825€ WITH 50€ STILL TO COME FROM THE GARAGE MAKING A GRAND TOTAL OF 1,875€
Much of this is down to Rafa at the bowling centre who generously donated ALL of the income for the bowling to the charity. A huge contribution of over 700€. We had 90 bowlers in total from the general public and the leagues. Contrary to the rumour mill, the public bowlers had their own competition and the league bowlers had theirs.
The atmosphere the whole day was brilliant, the bowling staff worked their socks off providing food and drink to all of us.
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE THAT TOOK PART IN HELPING TO MAKE THIS NOT ONLY A HIGHLY ENJOYABLE DAY BUT IN CONTRIBUTING TO THE FUNDS RAISED.
Raffle prize winners will be published on the forum tomorrow and then contacted by phone.
A huge thank you also to the lane sponsors.

And not forgetting the excellent singer Charlie the English Singer for performing free of charge in the evening so we could round the day off with a dance. A generous gesture, thank you. Phil & Sharron”
Thank you so much. Thanks to Phil and Sharon and Rafa for all the hard work. Thanks to Charlie for entertaining us. Thanks to all who worked to make it such a success and to all the lane sponsors and bowlers. We will make good use of the money to help people affected by cancer.
Here are some photos of the bowlers. If you were there you should be on there, if only a back view
