Darts players from Earlston's White Swan, in 1994.

Patrons of the White Swan pub in Earlston were supporting the Children’s Hospice Association Scotland charity. The pub’s mixed darts teams held a 12-hour darts marathon where nine players battled it out to raise funds for the Daily Record-led charity appeal. A raffle and a bottle smash helped push the total to £519. Meanwhile the White Swan’s ladies darts team chipped in too with a Christmas draw, raising £355.
