Peter Manley, one of the most recognisable faces in darts, is taking on all comers at Walton Sports and Social Club on Friday night.

‘One Dart’ will battle 16 local players in the charity fundraiser on May 20 at 7pm.

The event will benefit children’s burns victims charity, Burns Club, and Sofab, who support premature babies care units in the region.

The MC and referee for the evening will be South Elmsall’s Sky TV and PDC professional darts referee Paul Hinks.

The entertainment will also include a raffle and a sports memorabilia auction. Lots include a dartboard signed by no fewer than seven world champions, and a ball signed by Barnsley FC’s Wembley heroes, which have been generously donated.

Joint-organiser, Les Farrah, of Ryhill, said “It’s great that Peter and Paul are supporting the evening. The players themselves have been fundraising for several weeks and we are all looking forward to a great evening of darts to raise lots of money for very worthy local children’s charities.”

Tickets cost £3 and include the chance to play Peter. Pay on the door at Shay Lane.
