A darts tournament that took place in March at Rhayader Town Football Club has raised £235 for Rhayader Leg Club.

The Toby Hughes Darts Competition, named after the grandfather of tournament organiser John Davies, took place for the first time since the coronavirus pandemic, but had previously ran for many years.

Due to John Davies’ role at Rhayader Town Football Club, the darts tournament was hosted at the Club’s newly refurbished clubhouse.

Organisers of the tournament decided that proceeds from the competition would be donated to Rhayader Legs Club. The Leg Club is a drop in service every Monday 12.30-2.30 pm at Rhayader Leisure Centre and is free for the Rhayader and District community to access.

The Leg Club is run by District Nurses and local volunteers and welcomes anyone in the area who has leg problems, or healthy legs and wanting to keep them that way.

The cheque with the donation from the Toby Hughes Darts Competition was presented by Mo Davies and Diane Reeve, with a little help from Master Max Reeve. 

A spokesperson from Rhayader Leg Club said: "This is a valuable service in the community cutting down on NHS waiting lists at hospitals and visits to GP surgeries. The money will go a long way to keeping the leg club here in Rhayader for the foreseeable future."
