A former world darts champion was among those taking aim at the bullseye at the final of a charity season which raised £2,000 for good causes.
Steve Beaton, who is from North Walsham and won the British Darts Organisation's World Darts Championship in 1996, joined in the Craig Cutting Memorial Summer Darts League's session in at Sheringham's Tyneside Club on August 9.
Groups who benefitted from the fundraiser were Sheringham's Ladybird Pre-school Nursery, the Dystonia Society and the neonatal intensive care unit at Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, who each received £500. The rest of the money went towards an effort to fund a guide dog for the blind.
The fundraiser is named after Craig Cutting, from Sheringham, who died from cancer six years ago aged 29.
Kevin Webb, one of the organisers, said: "The £2,000 raised took us past £10,000 in the seven years we have done it. It has gone from strength to strength."
