BoyleSports Raises Parkinson’s UK Donation To £10,000 After World Grand Prix
BoyleSports have donated £10,000 to Parkinson’s UK after enhancing the total raised following a week of stellar darts at the BoyleSports World Grand Prix.
The leading bookmaker were the title sponsor for the famous double-start tournament, which was won on Saturday evening by Jonny Clayton at the Morningside Arena.
The Welshman helped increase the pot by £1,000 after BoyleSports had pledged a donation of £500 for every match in which their “Full House” market was achieved during the World Grand Prix; where a player wins the game, hits the most 180s and achieves the highest finish.
Clayton hit two of the twelve full houses during the seven nights of action, meaning a total of £6,000 had been raised by the time he hit double top to see off compatriot Gerwyn Price in Saturday’s final. But BoyleSports announced afterwards they would boost the pot further, taking the total donation to £10,000.
Parkinson’s UK is a former charity partner of the PDC and former Sky Sports darts presenter Dave Clark is a celebrity supporter of the organisation.
“Dave Clark, what a man,” Clayton told BoyleSports after his victory. “We were all trying to put money into that pot when we heard it was for such a great charity. I was happy to get two, but for BoyleSports to raise it to £10,000 is just fantastic.”
Leon Blanche, Head of Communications for BoyleSports, said: “There is no doubt they all tried to hit that full house because last year there were only eight; this year there were twelve. We’re delighted to support such a worthy cause and we hope this donation helps Parkinson’s UK with the great work that they do.”
