The match raised £3,289.33 for the Sick Children’s Trust which supports parents whose children are staying at Addenbrooke’s Hospital.

The darts match was organised as a thank you for the help and support that was given to couple Peter Whittlesey and Jade Peachey when their daughter Effie was born 13 weeks prematurely weighing just 2lb 4oz.

Mum Jade said: “A massive thank you to Jo Anderson for running the events and to our friends and family for all the support.”

The charity darts match, raffle and quiz was organised at the GER in March to give something back to the Trust.
