During a 3 week period from Monday 22nd. August to Wednesday 7th. September 2022 Alan Jones-Bratt will be attempting to complete a series of sports challenges that evolved because Alan will be 'celebrating' his 80th. birthday on 9th. September. Based on a theme of 80x80 he has planned to complete - in week 1)- 80 Ends of Outdoor Rink Bowling over 2 days - 40 ends per day, 80 Ends of Indoor Rink Bowling again same format as for outdoor -in week 2)- play 80 Holes of Golf over 3 days at 3 separate golf courses completing 27 Holes each day and in week 3)- doing 80 miles of walks over 4 days completing 4 different walks each 20 miles to full-fill the challenge. Special thanks indeed to each of the venues for allowing Alan to facilitate his challenges:- MALVERN HILLS INDOOR BOWLS CLUB, STOURPORT OUTDOOR BOWLING GREEN CLUB, St. DUNSTANS OUTDOOR BOWLS CLUB, WORCESTER, BROMSGROVE INDOOR BOWLS CLUB. Also - WHARTON PARK GOLF CLUB, OMBERSLEY GOLF CLUB also BEWDLEY PINES GOLF CLUB. All of this to support 4 charities that have personal importance in that they have had a devastating affects on Alans family. Firstly in April 1977 eldest brother Dennis died of Motor Neuron Disease aged just 50.Brother Stanley died in June 2010 aged 82, Stan was only member of family that suffered with Diabetes. In March 2020 brother Donald passed away after having severe Dementia, Don was 88. Finally brother Ivan incredibly recovered from a critical state of Prostate Cancer, the new Robotic treatment saved him. Sadly Ivan passed away on 14th. January 2022 Ivan was aged 86. Alan has just one Sister - Hilda now aged 95. Hilda was the weaker twin of Brother Dennis! This now leaves just 2 remaining members of the family, Hilda the eldest & Alan the youngest. Hopefully with your support Alan hopes to remember his 'lost' family members and provide the legacy of these challenges by making sizeable contributions from his efforts to support these deserving charities. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT

    Well just over 2 more weeks left of intensive training and then at last my 80 x 80 challenges begin. I am pleased with my fitness level & I don’t believe I could have done more or better. In past few weeks I have increased my golf practise & bowl several times each week, in addition to almost daily walking training so I am prepared for the tasks I have set myself. Any support you can give is most gratefully & graciously received. All 4 charities need all our support & kindness. Thank you. Kind regards, AJ-B

    Training is becoming more demanding as I endeavour to increase the intensity to an almost daily basis. I intend to be physically walking fit not only to complete the 4. X 20 mile walk challenges but to be also prepared for the bowling challenges that start on Monday 22nd August & the golf challenges on Monday 29th August. As well as walking daily I compete in bowls matches on average twice each week. I even had my first game of golf this week so I intend to be completely fit & focused to enable satisfactory completion of all my challenges. AJB

    I am pleased to report my training is back on schedule & my fitness improving. As the walking challenges will be most demanding this is where my concentration is linked with being in best condition. I am delighted we have received the 1st £1,000 in donations with still almost 3 months before the challenges start. Huge thanks to all who have so far given so generously, I feel sure we will achieve completing challenges & reaching our ambitious target for the 4 deserving charities. So please continue with your support. Kind regards AJ-B
