Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

Its 3594 miles from Kabul to Abingdon so rather than run,cycle,row or ski that distance we decided,as keen golfers, to hit a ball all the way back. Of course we are hitting it into a practice net but we researched that the average golfer hits a drive 260 yards so we've used that as our distance which means we'll be hitting the ball 24329 times. At 200 a day each this should take around 60 days!

Follow our progress as we hit the ball through virtual country and continent!! Please support us and the ABF as we battle blisters and sore backs!!

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

So please dig deep and donate now. Thank you,Al and Mal.

Well, thats it! The 24328th shot has been hit and the 3594th mile travelled! We've made it back to Dalton Bks in the the UK. We've got some donations to add and some pics to put on but no more balls to hit! Who hit the last shot? That will remain a golfing secret between us!
