COMPETITIVE residents hope to hit their target at a charity dart match to raise cash for Pontefract’s Prince of Wales Hospice.

Townville Sports Club will hold its annual upside down darts match – where the numbers on the dart board will be reversed – at its Poplar Avenue clubhouse on February 18.

Barry Nicholls, event organiser, said: “It should be really good fun and raise a lot of money for an excellent cause.

“We want everyone to feel welcome and by rearranging the dartboard it will give slightly less experienced players a sporting chance.

“This is the second year we have held the event and last year was great success so we are hoping for the best. Anyone of any age or ability can join us.”

The event entry fee is £5 and prizes include £200 for the winner, £100 for runners up and prizes for semi-finalists.

Doors will open at 11am and the games will begin at 12.30pm in the concert room.

Entry fees can be paid on the day. For more information call the clubhouse on 01977 553137.
