Manchester based Carfinance 247 raised an incredible £6,432 for Forever Manchester by hosting a charity darts match between Premier League Darts players Gary Anderson and Michael Smith.
The event held on Wednesday 25th April at Car Finance 247 HQ saw a tense fifteen minutes at the oche where Gary Anderson –two-time PDC World Champion – and Michael Smith, 2013 PDC Under-21 World Champion with six titles on the PDC Pro Tour, put themselves to the test to see how much they could raise during this time. This resulted in some incredible fundraising for Forever Manchester.
£50 was donated for a Bullseye, treble 20 gifted the charity £180 and there were also pounds up for grabs for a double top and double 16. Having already raised £3,216 during the challenge – CarFinance 247 upped the stakes and tasked the darts legends with doubling the donation if they both hit a chosen double, which they did!
