Trev hits char­ity bulls­eye

Stockport Express - - Your Pictures -

A DARTS player or­gan­ised a darts marathon to raise £750 for the hospi­tal that helped him beat cancer.

Trev Jones, 53, of York Street, Edge­ley, has or­gan­ised the event at The Bun­ga­low so­cial club for four years, in the process rais­ing hun­dreds of pounds for The Christie.

He was in­spired to raise money for the hospi­tal after be­ing treated for cancer him­self.

Trev said: “We’ve done this the past four years.

“I was di­ag­nosed with cancer my­self five years ago and was treated at The Christie- that’s why I de­cided to do this.

“I’m in re­mis­sion now, but I still go back there for checks.”

On the day, mem­bers of the club, where Trev has played for 40 years, played non-stop from 10am to 11pm, with mem­bers of the pub­lic able to join in and take on club mem­bers if they wanted to.

The play­ers handed out spon­sor­ship forms to gather funds, while lo­cal busi­nesses do­nated items in­clud­ing Cham­pagne and signed darts and darts boards to be raf­fled.

Land­lords of The Bun­ga­low, Cliff Cartwright and Dawn Han­cock, added to the funds raised and staff from Deep Pan Ex­press on Cas­tle Street even ar­rived with free pizza and added to do­na­tions.

The play­ers have raised a to­tal of £750 and on Tues­day, Septem­ber 26, had a visit from Dave Hollin from The Christie char­ity, when they handed over a cheque for the amount.
