The Norwich Charity Darts Masters 2016 once again proved to be a sensational evening of darts whilst raising over £12,500 for the Lord Baker Community Fund at the weekend, when five of the World’s biggest darts legends; including three former World Champions appeared at Norwich City Football Club. This annual fundraiser organised by Lord Russell Baker of Little Moulton included Eric Bristow, Bobby George, Keith Deller (2015 Champion), Steve Beaton and BIG Cliff Lazarenko.
The evening consisted of 10 audience games where 10 lucky people were drawn to play against the darting stars with each legend playing two matches. Both silent and live auction’s with amazing prizes up for grabs; including a pair of Mohammad Ali boxing shorts, set the fundraising alight, and a mini darts competition between the legends playing for the Norwich Charity darts Masters Trophy, was eventually won by local darts hero and the former World Champion Steve Beaton, Steve beat the 2015 Norwich Charity Darts Masters Champion Keith Deller 3 – 1 in the final.
Lord baker said, “This was a sensational night of top legends darts and some real showmanship by the players, I think the moment I loved most was Bobby George’s walk-on dressed in a replica King of India full length gown, made in India during his recent TV series, and carrying his signature candelabra with 5 lighted candles; what an entrance.”
Lord Baker who is the NARS Patron added, “The fundraising at this year’s event has been amazing and will go a long way to supporting my chosen charities this year who are; Norfolk Accident Rescue Services, Chapel Road School for Disabled Children in Attleborough, Star Throwers Cancer Care & Support in Wymondham, Norfolk Community Foundation and a local grant-giving scheme for Norfolk projects”.
Steve Beaton the former 1996 World Champion said, “What a great night and a brilliant crowd. Great too play in my local City and raise a few quid for our charities. Also, it was good to win the trophy off my mate Keith Deller who I’m sure would want to win it back next year. Big thank-you to Lord Russell Baker for organising such a great night once again! I’m looking forward to the next one”.
