A DARTS star has stepped up to the oche to support an appeal to raise £6,000 for two disabled brothers.

Terry Jenkins, currently ranked tenth in the world, will give 20 people the chance to play against him during a special event next month to support The Legacy Rainbow House.

The charity provides help and support to several people in the upper Calder Valley, including brothers Andrew and Nathan Greenwood, of Todmorden.

Andrew, ten, and Nathan, nine, who have been diagnosed with cerebral palsy, have been attending The Legacy Rainbow House for specialist treatment for the past eight years.

But as a result of a leap in demand for the charity’s specialist expertise, it must now raise additional funds to ensure it can sustain and develop its services to meet future need.

Each current visiting family has been asked to raise £3,000 per child to help the charity’s fundraising team increase support in the communities where they are located.

As part of the fundraising programme, An evening with Terry “The Bull” Jenkins will be held at Littleborough Conservative Club on April 21.

Terry said: “I’m very much looking forward to the evening. I have three children of my own and it’s nice to be involved and supporting a charity that is personal and close to my heart.

“I’m sure the exhibition will be a great laugh for everyone and we will hopefully raise a lot of money for Andrew and Nathan and their appeal.”

Tickets are available in advance priced £10. They will also be available on the door priced £15.

A limited number of VIP tickets, including a meet and greet with Terry, are available priced £20.

Doors open at 7pm.
