A world champion darts player came to March for a showcase event at the GER Sports Club.
Dennis Priestley played in his trademark Dennis The Menace T shirt which was auctioned at the end of the night for a cancer charity along with the signed board everybody played on and other items.
Dennis, 67, won two world championships, and was the first player to win both the BDO and WDC (now PDC) world championships, in 1991 and 1994.
He is nicknamed “The Menace”, after the cartoon character which is why he wears his red and black shirt and uses red and black flights.
Tony Barnes, president of the Robingoodfelllows Lane club said: “We had a good turn out. There were 16 players, it’s more about having a good time and showcasing skill rather than scoring.”

Afterwards items were sold - his trademark shirt was bought for £170, the dart board they played on went for £110.
In total around £350 was raised which Dennis asked to be donated to his favourite cancer charity.
