Darts fans packed out Roffey Sports and Social Club, Horsham on Friday night as over £5,000 was raised for charity.

Premier League darts stars James Wade, Simon Whitlock, Michael van Gerwen and Robert Thornton were joined by fellow professionals Mark Webster, Paul Nicholson, Vincent van der Voort and Co Stompe for a night of top quality arrows, hosted by legendary commentator John Gwynne.

The total amount raised from ticket sales, raffle, auction and donations was £5,250, with all proceeds being split between Bipolar UK and Bradbury Enhanced Care Service.

Bipolar UK is the national charity dedicated to supporting individuals with the much misunderstood and devastating condition of Bipolar, while Bradbury Enhanced Care Service provides crucial support for young adults with complex health needs, physical disabilities and life limiting conditions.

All players and staff gave their time freely for what was a wonderful night for two worthy causes.

World number four Wade, who gave a speech about his experience with Bipolar disorder, said: “I want to thank all the players for giving up there time to support the two causes.

“But most of all I want to thank everyone for turning up and raising a lot of money, which I hope can make a real difference.”
