Andy Hamiltons Charity Challenge

ANDY HAMILTON has set himself a special challenge on Sunday February 17 to raise funds for Haven House Children's Hospice, the PDC's official charity.

The former World Championship finalist will visit 16 Bravo Inns pubs in the north-west of England in one day to challenge players in each venue.

Funds will be raised for Haven House Children's Hospice through tickets sold to see Hamilton's visit, with pubs in Bolton, Accrington, Chorley, Wigan, Warrington, Leigh and Manchester all taking part. "We are very proud to be associated with Andy Hamilton and more than happy to be helping out such a good cause," said Bravo Inns Operations Director Operations Director Mark Dean. "It will be a fun day but it is very important for us to raise funds for the Haven House Children's Hospice."

Haven House Chief Executive Mike Palfreman added: "This event is a great fund raising opportunity for Haven House Children's Hospice as well as a great day out for darts fans. "Our thanks go to Andy Hamilton and everyone at Bravo Inns for raising money for us. In our tenth year it is precisely this kind of support which enables us to continue our work with life-limited children and families."

Hamilton recently paid a visit to Haven House Children's Hospice during the Ladbrokes World Darts Championship to deliver Christmas presents to some of the children receiving care at the centre. Haven House's partnership with the PDC has already seen them raise £25,000 through their Charity Challenge at the Cash Converters Players Championship Finals and Ladbrokes World Darts Championship, and an auction held at the PDC Awards Dinner at The Dorchester.
