In a 180 degree turnaround in his sporting luck, County Council Chairman Peter Tomlinson hit the bullseye at a charity darts match yesterday.
The tournament was organised by the Mayor of Kidderminster, to raise money for the Mayoral charities; Crackerjack Children’s Trust, 1st Kidderminster Boys’ Brigade and Blue Cross Bromsgrove re-homing centre. It was held at the Cavalier Public House at Offmore, Kidderminster and featured a darts match between various civic dignitaries.
As well as the County Council Chairman, also taking part were the Mayors from Kidderminster, Stourport, Worcester and Droitwich and the Vice-Chairman of Wychavon District Council.
At the end of the evening County Chairman Peter came out on top, winning a trophy and a bottle of fizz, welcome success after his crash at the Shelsley Walsh Hill Climb on Saturday.
“After my misfortune on the racetrack last week, my success with the darts has cheered me up considerably”, said Peter, “Thankfully my hands have stopped shaking and I was able to hit the target. But the most important thing is that an enjoyable evening has raised funds for the Mayor’s local charities”
