Jewellery, clothing and goodies from global sporting and TV legends, including boxer Muhammad Ali and fooballer Harry Kane, are among auction items at a charity darts day in March raising funds for Peterborough Hospital cancer ward.

There is a signed Status Quo montage, an Only Fools and Horses goody box and even a Freddy Krueger glove.

The ninth Mark Cross charity darts fun day is at the GER on Saturday March 16 in aid of Peterborough Hospital’s oncology department.

Mark said: “To date we have raised a grand total of £56,579. This will be our ninth consecutive year of hosting the event.

“The oncology department at Peterborough Hospital treats local people for cancer and carries out much needed research into the disease at a local level.
