Two Neale-Wade pupils have organised a darts tournament in a bid to raise as much money as possible for The Papworth Trust.
As part of the School Accumulator Challenge, Nathan Cross and his friend Shae Pooley have been given £50 to help set up the event.
The Papworth Trust supports more than 5000 disabled people each year.
Nathan is following in the footsteps of his father, police officer Mark Cross, who has raised many tens of thousands of pounds for the Oncology Department at Peterborough City Hospital with his annual darts tournament and auction.
The tournament will take place at the GER on Saturday, December 27. Doors will open at 11.30am with entries closing at 1pm.
There will be pairs and triples competitions with those who do not play darts regularly being teamed up with those that do.
The £50 will be used as a prize for the ‘Guess how many darts flights are in the bottle’ challenge. People can pay a £1 a guess and the winner will receive £50.
