Whitby’s darts players are aiming to beat a world record of 278 legs of darts in 12 hours in a fund-raising challenge.

Pool players will also be getting in on the act tomorrow to see how many games they can get through in the same period of time, with the aim of playing more than 164 games.

The event takes place at Whitby Cricket Club’s cutter shed bar and St Catherine’s Hospice.

The darts and pool challenge is from 8am to 8pm, followed by the grand raffle and auction.

Up for grabs are:

l cash prizes of £500 and £100

l a night for two people staying at the New Angel in Whitby

l a signed print of Sunderland manager Paulo Di Canio

l a tour of the Manchester United stadium and museum

l a Newcastle United stadium tour for four

l two tickets to a Sheffield Wednesday league match

l a signed Hartlepool United football

l two Flamingo Land tickets

l one month for two deal at the Fitness Machine in Whitby

Anyone can take part on the day for just £2 – tickets will be available in the cricket pavilion.

Organiser Garry Summerson told the Whitby Gazette: “After the death of my mother through cancer, I am committed to raising money for St Catherine’s Hospice as they get no Government funding.

“Five hundred pounds will be donated through this event each year out of the funds, which was kindly agreed with the Whitby Cricket Club committee.”

Any businesses wanting to donate to the event can call Garry on 07949 985311 or anywilling raffle sellers.
