A FUNDRAISER for Newton Church scored 180, raising more than £800.

Organisers were delighted with the success of the night, which saw over 100 people turn up at Tydd St Giles Village Hall to see darts ace Martin ‘Wolfie’ Adams.

Everyone who put their names down got to play against the England Team Captain, thanks to Wolfie playing 26 games of 501.

Even the children who went along were not left out. They were allowed to take part and the youngest were allowed to have a go in the interval.

The dartboard was auctioned off at the end of the night and made an amazing £210 after some fierce bidding.

Sandy Watts, a Friend of Newton Church, said: “The atmosphere was great and Wolfie and the MC Ian Tilley did a fantastic job. They were very friendly and sociable.”

A profit of £803.31 was made and the Friends thanked everyone who helped them raise such a brilliant amount.

The Friends are raising funds to continue refurbishing the fabric of the church and its interior. Unfortunately, money raised in the last year had to go towards replacing lead stolen twice from the church roof.

A toilet for the disabled and kitchen are a priority as this will enable more events to be held at the church.
