Whilst we do many other practical things, fund-raising is an important part of our contribution to society.thumbnail view
Over the last 15 years more than £300,000 has been donated by the Club to the two main hospices in the area and many other local causes. The main event has been the annual Darts Marathon which typically raises £10,000 in sponsorship. Each year two or three social events are organised for members and friends to enjoy as well as to raise money.
Darts Marathon 2019
The first team to take part in this years competition threw their darts at The Heath Tavern, Haywards Heath, on 15th February.
Twenty or more teams competed in the competition, raising money for charity and having great fun in the process.
The prizes and certificates were awarded to the winning teams at the Horsted Club, Horsted Keynes, on Wednesday 29th May 2019.
This year the Darts Teams with their sponsorship raised in excess of £8,000.00 in aid of charity.
It should be noted that every penny raised goes to the chosen causes as everything is done on a purely voluntary basis – so there are no administration costs at all. Whilst fund-raising is a very important part of our work, we get involved in many hands-on activities as well – see the other sections on the website.
