Players step up for charity darts match

Excitement is building for a darts event in the Borders on August 24.

The Volunteer Hall in Duns is the venue for the Dalgleish Berwickshire Open when four Borderers will take on four Professional Darts Corporation (PDC) stars to raise money for the local multiple sclerosis charity group.

The event offers a chance to meet PDC players and bid in a charity auction to play them.

Barry Dalgleish, from Galashiels, faces Berwickshire and Scotland’s former Premier League champion Gary Anderson.

In the other matches, Darren Bohme (Duns) takes on Stephen Bunting, current BDO world champion, Kenny Latimer (Birgham) plays Dean Winstanley, while another Dinger, Callum Donaldson, goes up against Michael Smith.

Tickets are available by calling 07745 218856.

They are priced at £40 for a VIP one, which includes a ‘Meet and Greet’ with the players before the darts matches start, or £30 for a standard ticket. They can be purchased as single tickets, or as a complete table.
