The Story Behind The Artwork:

Bob Bowling

By Lauren Clark
In aid of the Bob Willis Fund - bobwillisfund.org

Regarded as one of the greatest fast bowlers of all time, Bob Willis is a former England Cricket Captain, International Cricket Council Hall of Fame member and much-loved Sky Sports broadcaster.

He remains England’s fourth highest wicket-taker and is perhaps best-remembered for his heroic figures of 8-43 in the Ashes Test at Headingley in 1981.

Blu Goblin is delighted to offer a limited edition framed print run of a striking painting by Bob’s wife, Lauren Clark, of his distinctive bowling action.

Hand-signed by Bob's wife, Lauren Clark

The single price for each print has been set at the total wickets Bob took in both his test and one day career, £405.

The Bob Willis Fund

Prostate cancer is the number one diagnosed male cancer in the UK, killing 11,500 men a year. 1 in 8 men get prostate cancer, increasing to 1 in 4 if you are black. There is still no national screening programme and the current prostate-antigen (PSA) test is unreliable. The Bob Willis Fund has been set up to raise money for prostate cancer research & awareness, with the aim of achieving a national screening programme in the next 3-5 years.

"We hope the work done in Bob’s name will help slow the relentless progress of this silent killer, raise awareness of the importance of testing and, ultimately, prevent others from having to pick up the pieces after losing their husband, partner, father, brother, uncle, grandfather, friend or colleague unnecessarily and far too young."
