UK SPORTS ASSOCIATION For People with Learning Disability “DARTING FOR CHARITY DOSH” WITH BOBBY GEORGE!
Its back! The incredibly successful Bobby George National Charity Darts Marathon is re-launching after an 11 year break. This year’s Darts Marathon, led again by Darts Legend, Bobby George, will take place between 16th – 23rd September 2011 in pubs, clubs and other local venues across the UK and all raising money to support disabled people and sport across the country.
The event is organised jointly by the UK Sports Association for People with Learning Disability (UKSA) and KEEN London, in association with Darts! Monthly magazine is based on teams of 8 playing a 4 hour darts marathon in their own local at a time they choose during Darts Marathon week. Team’s win prizes for Highest Team Score, Highest Individual Score, Most 180’s, Highest Team and Individual Sponsorship Raised, Most Money in the Swear box and many more! Prizes include Trophies, Balloon Flights, Trip to Paris, White Water Rafting, Theatre Tickets, Hampers and lots, lots more. Major prize winners will be invited to a Gala Prize Giving Presentation and will have the chance to meet the man himself Bobby George!
“Darts players are amongst the most generous in the UK” says Bobby George, “I really hope we can beat previous events and raise at least £100k for the UK Sports Association to help their work with disabled people in sport – come on darters – do a bit of darting for dosh, but don’t forget to enter now so you have lots of time to fundraise before Marathon week!”
Team’s will compete for the coveted Bobby George perpetual trophy currently held by 1999 winners, the Prince of Wales PH, London N15 with a staggering score of 184,499, and not forgetting the skilled and generous fundraisers at Nolan’s Bar, London SW8 who raised an impressive £5,417.25 and hold the Highest Team Sponsorship title!
Bobby says, “I’m sure there will be a few looking to come up with the most original team name this year too– so can you do better than the 1999 winner ‘Mr Whippy and The Cordless Drills’ – its going to take some doing!”
The previous 4 marathons raised over £200,000 in total and it is hoped that the 2011 event will be the most successful yet.
Calling all darts players, publicans, league secretaries and anyone who wants to have a fun night of darts whilst raising money for disabled people across the UK! You don’t need to be the best dart player to be part of this event – all are welcome to take part!
