Postie scores a bull’s-eye for Breast Cancer Care

On May 26, Inverurie based postman, Graham Watson, is holding his seventh annual Charity Darts Competition at the Inverurie Royal British Legion Club.

The competition is being held in aid of Breast Cancer Care, the charity which offers emotional and practical support to anyone affected by breast cancer.

Craig Wilson “The Kilted Chef” from Eat on the Green Restaurant will open the event which will begin at 1pm. There will be a raffle and auction which will include a prize donated by Craig of a personal chef for a day.

There will be separate men’s and women’s competitions, both of which are £7 to enter. The men’s prizes are as follows - first prize: £250, second prize: £125, semi-finalists: £30 and quarter-finalists: £10. The women’s prizes are – first prize: £100, second prize: £50, semi-finalists: £15.

The prize money has been donated by local companies, meaning that all of the money raised on the day will go to Breast Cancer Care. This is the fourth occasion that Graham, 43, who lives in Kemnay, has held the competition to raise money for Breast Cancer Care. To date his fundraising efforts have raised over £7,000 for the charity.

Graham Watson said: “I would like to thank all of the event sponsors who have so kindly donated again this year, as without their help, I wouldn’t be able to raise so much money. I would also like to thank everybody who turns up year in, year out to support this competition as they make it what it is today”

Gillian Hamilton, Area Fundraiser for Breast Cancer Care Scotland said: “We would like to thank Graham very much for continuing to support Breast Cancer Care. The money raised from the competition will go towards making a real difference to the lives of those affected by breast cancer.”

Entrants must register before 12.30pm on May 26 and anybody wishing to enter before can contact Graham at graham813@hotmail.com
