DARTS players are being urged to take part in a charity tournament in St Neots to raise money for cancer charities.
The Sid Mills Charity Darts Tournament is on Sunday, June 18, and has been organised by darts enthusiast Carl Tokens after his granddad, Sid Mills, died from cancer three months ago.
Carl, who plays for the Bulls Head darts team in St Neots, said: "My granddad was a keen darts player so I think this tournament is a good way of honouring his memory and raising money for the people who looked after him when he became ill.
"About 70 people have already signed up to take part so hopefully we will meet our £1,000 target. I've had a lot of support from local darts teams who have pledged to take part."
Anyone wishing to participate in the tournament, which is taking place at The Riverside Snooker Club in St Neots at 1pm, should register on the day of the tournament before 12.45pm. There is a £3 registration fee for anyone wanting to take part but entry for spectators is free.
The winner of the tournament will receive a silver engraved tankard and a Winmanu dartboard. The runner-up will get a silver plated engraved cup and a Winmanu dartboard.
There will also be a raffle with prizes including a £30 voucher for a meal at the Hong Kong restaurant in St Neots, a family sitting and photo worth £60 from Constable Photography and darts from 9darts.com.
All proceeds will be split between Macmillan Nurses and Cancer Research UK.
