A raffle offering exclusive money-can’t-buy darts memorabilia has raised a staggering £20,000 in aid of the NHS.
The raffle was the brainchild of 27-year-old Keegan Brown, a Medical Laboratory Assistant at St Mary’s Hospital in Newport, who has made quite an impression on the world darts stage over the past few years.
As previously reported by Island Echo, his sporting fame has paid dividends in securing some fantastic raffle prizes including a signed shirt from 16-time World Champion Phil ‘The Power’ Taylor.
Keegan’s raffle caused quite a stir on social media, with a whole array of prizes including signed shirts from Phil Taylor, Michael van Gerwen, Simon Whitlock, Gary Anderson and Daryl Gurney being donated to the cause. The extensive prize list also included a signed dartboard, prints, photos, darts, a surround, mat, and even dart coaching.
A total of £20,000 has now been raised with the winners of the extensive list of prizes being announced via Keegan’s Twitter profile this morning (Monday).
Speaking on Twitter, Keegan said:
“Star-struck, absolutely unbelievable! I’m not gonna profess that it went perfectly or without things to learn but I genuinely cannot thank you all for the support and generosity you have all shown.
“Still absolutely shocked at what we have all achieved, the biggest thank you that I could ever give!”
