Charity darts fundraising success
LAST Saturday saw the annual charity darts tournament organised by Paul Eagle and friends celebrate its 10th anniversary. This event, which was held at the Chaucer Club in Bungay, was very well supported and produced some very exciting matches in both the ladies' and men's competitions.
LAST Saturday saw the annual charity darts tournament organised by Paul Eagle and friends celebrate its 10th anniversary.
This event, which was held at the Chaucer Club in Bungay, was very well supported and produced some very exciting matches in both the ladies' and men's competitions.
But there could only be two victors and the spoils went to Sue Thompson for the ladies who beat Nicky Doidge 4-1 in a riveting final.
This was followed by the men's final where Andy 'Goldfinger' Gilding triumphed 4-2 over worthy opponent Peter Birkett.
Other awards, on the night, went to the highest checkout in each competition.
These were won by Laura Cooper with a checkout of 96 and Andy Gilding was again in fine form for the men producing the highest checkout of the evening of 122.

During the interval there was a mini auction, the highlight of which was a signed shirt donated by World Champion Phil 'The Power' Taylor. This was bought with a bid of �120.
A supper of sausage, mash and beans was also served, excellently prepared by Wendy Tooke.
But the true winner on the night was the charity as the grand sum of �630 was raised for the Sandra Chapman Cancer Centre.
This was boosted by men's champion Gilding, who donated his �100 prize money back, making the final total �730.
