Darts: Widnes & District League on target with £950 in charity donations

THE enforced absence of a charity summer league from this year’s calendar didn’t stop Widnes & District Darts League from helping out good causes.

The league has presented Halton Haven Hospice with £700.

It also donated £250 towards the running costs of a fortnightly disco at the RAOB Club for people with learning disabilities and other difficulties.

League secretary Mark Harrison said: "If there is time to run a summer league between the end of one winter league and the next, we have a small competition with all monies raised passed onto a local charity.

"Unfortunately, this year, we decided there was not enough time.

"However, in the previous couple of years we have run a summer league with one in particular being sponsored by Ray Booth in memory of Phil McGuinness.

"Phil was a Mill Brow player and cared for by Halton Haven Hospice, which is why the charity was chosen."
