BoyleSports will be raising money for Parkinson's UK at a prestigious international darts tournament next week.
Bookmaker BoyleSports is the title sponsor for the darts World Grand Prix, running from 3-9 October 2021 at the Morningside Arena in Leicester. They've kindly pledged to donate £500 to Parkinson's UK for every match where a single player achieves a 'full house'. That means they win the game, hit the most 180s and achieve the highest finish.
Leon Blanche, Head of Communications for BoyleSports, said: "Many of us will know someone affected by Parkinson's and we are pleased to be able to highlight and support such a worthy cause.
"With quality like Gerwyn Price and Michael van Gerwen at the oche, we are hopeful that we'll see the full house landing plenty of times throughout the tournament and we'll be delighted to cheer on each and every one."
Parkinson's UK's darts connection
Parkinson's UK is a previous charity partner of the Professional Darts Corporation, and former Sky Sports darts presenter Dave Clark is one of our celebrity supporters.
"Thank you so much to BoyleSports for this fantastic show of support for Parkinson's UK, a cause that is close to my heart," said Clark.
"I've been living with Parkinson's for 10 years now. It's a relentless and unpredictable condition, but I'm determined to stay positive and live the best possible life I can.
"There are around 145,000 people in the UK who like me, face the daily challenges that Parkinson's can throw at you – so finding new and better treatments just can't wait.
"Parkinson's UK is helping to make that a reality by funding pioneering research, and the money raised during the BoyleSports World Grand Prix will help drive that forward."
