Phil Taylor joins Potteries darts stars for Donna Louise charity fundraiser


Potteries darts legend Phil Taylor took to the oche to raise cash for the Donna Louise Children’s Hospice.

The Power was crowned the Donna Louise Masters Tournament Winner 2015  after beating fellow Stokie Adrian Lewis 6-3 in the fundraising event.

Other Stoke-on-Trent darts players Andy Hamilton and Ian White also competed in front of a packed Kings Hall audience to raise money for the Donna Louise Children’s Hospice.

During the night amateur players from the city battled it out before teaming up with the professionals for a one off exhibition match.

Melanie Williams, the head of high value partnerships at the charity said: “It means so much to everyone who is involved.

“The hospice is looking after children and their families who are going through extremely challenging and difficult times, we need to be there for them.”

The hospice raised an estimated total of £35,000 for the charity, which has to meet a target of £3m a year.

Phil Taylor, 55, said: “They are friends of mine, I have a big heart for this charity.

“Not just because they’re personal friends but I go down and see what they do.”
