High Howdon ladies’ darts team raise £1,000 for charity

The Monday night ladies’ darts team in High Howdon have raised £1,000 following a darts marathon.

The team threw darts from 11am to 11pm at High Howdon Social Club.

There was also a raffle where local companies such as Nestle, Tom Owens, Star Bowl, The Black Bull, Newcastle Greyhounds , Charisma Florest and Gala Bingo donated prizes, as well as a large tombola.

The money raised is to be split with £500 each going to The Stroke Association, in memory of Allan Fitzpatrick who was the secretary of the High Howdon Social club, and the North East Air Ambulance in memory of Shaun McGuire.

The players thanked everyone who supported the event, in particular the committee of the High Howdon Social Club who were accommodating and helpful throughout the day.
