AFTER 46 consecutive days of playing bowls at different clubs across NSW you could forgive plumber Ricky Holt for feeling fatigued.
“I thought I would be a bit tired, but I’m not too bad,” Mr Holt said at Culcairn Bowling Club on Tuesday.
The former North Albury footballer has undertaken his 50 for 50 Bowls campaign to raise money for cystic fibrosis and autism help.
It will end in Albury on Saturday at the Commercial Club after 50 days.
Mr Holt set off from his home at Pambula on October 8 and has since gone to Tweed Heads, Sydney, Dubbo and Ungarie, whose population of 300 raised $1200.
His Wodonga nephews and niece who have autism and/or cystic fibrosis have inspired him.
Their father Dallas Holt said he was “overwhelmed” by his brother’s deed.
About $45,000 has been raised with a mark of $70,000 being targeted with a big dinner at the Commercial Club on Saturday night.
For more details to help or attend the dinner go to the 50 for 50 Bowls Facebook page.
