A Bull’s Eye of £10,000 is the target for this year’s Darts Marathon run by the Rotary Club of Cuckfield and Lindfield.
The annual event has grown in popularity and over the last 13 years has raised more than £100,000 for charity.
This year the main good causes are St Peter & St James Hospice and Chestnut Tree House Children’s Hospice plus other charities supported by Rotary.
Club president Alan Bray said: “You only have to look at the stories in the Middy each week to see that there are many people with an appetite for helping those in need. Our Darts Marathon offers the opportunity to help the community, and have fun at the same time.”
Teams of six people throw darts for one hour to achieve the highest score. Serious darts teams enter for the hot competition while all sorts of other organisations such as churches, businesses, clubs and pubs raise teams just for the fun.
Rotarians keep score and ensure fair play.
The marathon is run over February, March and April. To enter, contact Alex Mackenzie on 01444 483 465, email firstname.lastname@example.org or Geoff Dew on 01444 414 456, email email@example.com. See also website www.rotarysussex.org
