A 24 Hours of Darts Marathon Raises Thousands for Charity

24 hours of darts

Last week, Oliver Ladbrooke Davies and Dan Thomas took on an innovative fundraiser and challenged themselves to play 24 hours of darts to raise thousands for Prostate Cymru.

The duo took on the challenge in their local pub, Town Hall Square, and decided they would attempt to break the Guinness World Record of Highest Score in 24 hours as a pair”.

The record they set out to break is 400,000.

Currently, they are still waiting to find out whether they were successful in beating the current world record, however they have already raised a staggering £2040.

Speaking about the challenge Oliver said, “As big darts fans and local league legends, Dan “The Doc” Thomas & myself, Oliver “The Sheriff” Ladbrooke-Davies will embrace the oche for 24 hours, attempting to break the Guinness World Record of “Highest Score in 24 hours as a pair”.

He continued, “In playing for 24 hours, we estimate that we’ll accumulatively throw over 30,000 darts, complete over 70,000 steps and walk over 33 miles (or 54km). Guinness World Record rules stipulate that the attempt must be strictly documented and the venue must be open to the public, so a special licence has been sought and the pub will be open for the duration.”

Prostate Cymru are so grateful to anyone that decides to fundraise for us, and as a charity with no government funding, every penny counts. 

If you’ve been inspired by Oliver and Dan’s creative fundraiser and would like to fundraise for us please contact us on [email protected].
