Wolfie Adams boosts Sheringham pub dart event
Darts star Wolfie Adams has helped a North Norfolk pub team raise �1,000 for charity - at an event tinged with sadness.
The man with world champion and master titles under his belt travelled to the Sheringham Crown for an evening organised by Norfolk-based British Dart Organisation official Ken Veal.
Mr Veal, a retired builder from Wisbech, died last month but told his son Darren, who plays for the pub team, the event should go ahead.
Martin Wolfie Adams played 18 local players in exhibition games and was beaten by two - Bernie Wright and co-organiser Ben Carpenter, who admitted 'I think he let a couple of us win.
'He is leagues above us - doing four or five 180s a game. We do one a month.'

'It was a bit sad but Ken said we should see it through,' he added.
