‘Wolfie’ Adams and Joe Perry help raise �2k at Fenland pool charity marathon

DARTS legend Martin ‘Wolfie’ Adams and snooker star Joe Perry helped raise more than �2,000 at a charity 24-hour pool marathon in Fenland on Saturday.

Keen challengers flocked to March Royal British Legion Club and made donations to compete against Adams and Perry. Fen Potter, Perry, from Chatteris, even tasted defeat against Andy Harvey as he swapped the snooker table for an afternoon of eight-ball action.

Adams, current BDO World Champion, was unbeaten on the oche but also played pool to help raise further funds for Help for Heroes and the legion club in West End, March.

The day was organised by Karl Wales, Gary Brinn and the rest of the legion’s pool teams players.

Paul Larham, a legion team member, said: “Both Joe and Martin were very friendly, very open and enjoyed the challenge while having a laugh at the same time.

“I played ‘Wolfie’ Adams at pool and I must say he’s better on the oche than he is at the pool table. However, it was a great experience helped by the fact that both Perry and him are so down to earth.

“Andy Harvey was over the moon when he beat Joe - who of course took it all in good spirits. It was a fantastic day.”
