A marathon effort to help hospice and cricket club

Plenty of stamina will be needed by those people taking part in a 12-hour darts and pool marathon, to raise funds for St Catherine’s Hospice and Whitby Cricket Club.

The event takes place at the cricket club, on Upgang Lane, from 8am to 8pm on Saturday September 6, and will be followed by a money-spinning raffle.

There are cash prizes of up to £300, a pair of tickets to Flamingo Land theme park, a PDC darts shirt signed by 17 PDC players, match tickets to see Sheffield Wednesday and Bradford City, paintballing for 20, four rounds at Whitby Golf Club and many more.

Anyone who can donate items for the raffle can email Garry Summerson at garry72@mail.com
