On target for Rotary charities

Joseph Bulmer

TWENTY one teams took part in the 12th annual charity darts marathon organised by The Rotary Club of Bideford Bridge.

Teams played for two hours while raising money through sponsorship, social events and even an art auction and this year’s event has so far raised well over �6,000.

Additional sponsorship of �500 from Peter Hockin of Devonshire Pine helped to make it even more successful.

The winning team in the marathon event, based on scoring and fund raising, was once again the Coach and Horses from Appledore, who raised �1,454.50 and scored 43,953.

They collected the perpetual trophy for the event at the finals night tournament held at The Milky Way, Clovelly..

The London Inn, Kilkhampton, achieved the highest marathon score with 60,560, with team member Dave Taylor also setting the highest individual score of 11,085.

Denise Williams of the High St Social Club, Bideford, won the award for the highest ladies score with 7,851.

An inscribed rose bowl was presented to Wendy Rose of the Coach and Horses at Appledore in recognition of her support over the past five years, during which she has been responsible for raising over �6,000.

Twelve teams competed in the finals night tournament, which was won by Bradworthy Social Club, who triumphed over the Anchor Inn from Hartland.

A plate completion for first round losers was won by the Buckland Brewer Double Gates team from the Coach and Horses.
