Darts contest in memory of Keith raises £200

A DARTS tournament in memory of a well-known and liked Sidmouth personality raised £200 for Devon Air Ambulance.

The contest was again staged at the Black Horse pub - where the late Keith Jordan was a regular - last Thursday, February 21.

A night of fun ended with a closely contested final between Matt Isaac and Phil Pearce - with a very high standard of darts.

Phil won the trophy for the third year running on the last double of the last leg.

Funds from a raffle and entrance fees will go to the air ambulance - which rushed Keith to hospital when he collapsed suddenly in February 2009.

Keith, who was assistant steward at Sidmouth War Memorial Club, died three days later.

Black Horse landlady Lynnette Helmer thanked all those who played for their support.
