Darts icon aims for Weston fund-raiser

EX-WORLD darts champion Bob Anderson will be taking on Weston throwers for charity next month.

A dozen players will tackle Bob at the Old Manor Inn in Worle on March 14 to raise money for the Weston-based Vision North Somerset charity.

Those wanting to play Clevedon-based Bob can bid for two tickets on Ebay, which includes two three-course meals and wine at the Old Manor Inn.

Bob was world champion in the late 1980s during the famous darting era of Eric Bristol, John Lowe and Jocky Wilson. He still plays in competitions and was recently playing on Sky TV.

Sue Potepa, spokesperson for Vision North Somerset, said she is delighted to have such a big darting name to help them raise money.

She said: "We're hoping to raise thousands on the night. Bob has been such a help to us and darts is a popular game in Weston.

"We're now getting round all the pubs to drum up support. We have a sweepstake for six players and an auction on the night."

The event will start at 8pm, and sweepstake tickets, priced at £2.50, are available from Sue Potepa on 01934 419393. (story source...)
