A BUILDER has completed a 12 hour darts marathon to raise money for the West End Wildcats.

Rob Sanders, has raised more than £650 to help fund the performance group’s visit to the Royal Albert Hall on Sunday.

Rob, 40, of Great Close, South Witham, said: “The back of my legs and my arms feel like I have gone ten rounds with Mike Tyson.

“The headache I had by the end way horrific but I thought I have to keep going for the girls.

Supported by his five-year-old daughter Madison, who will be on stage at the Albert Hall with her friends from the Wildcats Theatre School, which is based in Stamford, Rob managed to circle the board hitting the doubles and finishing with the bull’s eye 58 times during the 12 hours, leaving him wondering if he has set a new world record.

But darts mad Rob can not be stopped and he stepped up and played on a days rest for his club team on Monday night.

Rob said: “We won and I didn’t miss a double all night as well.”

The day began at 10am at The Blue Bell pub in Easton-on-the-Hill and ran until 11.30pm.

Creative director at Wildcats Caz Dolby said: “Rob and his partner Nikki’s determination and commitment to raising funds for West End Wildcats has made a huge difference to what the children can now achieve.

“It has put money into the group to support their next performance in the West End, as well as support other children who financially require assistance.”
