A group of guys from Haddenham United Football Club will be participating in a 'Million-to-Zero' darts event over the Easter weekend, to raise funds for Men United, the prostate cancer charity

Kicking off at 3pm on Good Friday (3rd April) with a starting score of 1 million, the darts players will work their way down to zero, a task that is likely to take them approximately 48 hours of continuous darts play!

It has been Alan Lewis's plan to resurrect this fundraiser after watching his father and brother participate nearly 40 years ago, in the event organised by Clarence Robinson, the former landlord of the Red Lion pub, the proceeds of which bought Christmas food hampers for the village pensioners.

Due to licensing hours in 1977, the original event had to be held in the sports and social club, so to maintain this tradition the same venue is to be used again, thanks to Ian Bamford.

Alan hopes to get some of the original dart throwers together to start this year's event.

If you'd like to participate, please get in touch with Helen and Alan Lewis: 292971 or 07917 822876

Female cancer charities rightfully get a lot of support and media coverage. By comparison, male cancer charities come a very poor second. Prostate cancer is almost as common as female breast cancer and is the most common form of cancer in men. It might shock you to realise that prostate cancer is almost twice as common as lung cancer — source
