Hello darlings, everywhere. 

​it is official - our Charity is tops for spending your money where it is meant to go. The latest Charity Comission summary confirms we spend 99.5p in the pound on our causes comparing money spent  to the money collected. Yes, we keep our expenditure down to almost nothing through shrewd management , no wages, no ridiculous expense claims or hidden 'overheads' plus the generosity of kind folk who donate pens, paper, envelopes, etc. So, special thanks to all our Trustees , Officers and supporters - you are all stars. If you feel you would like to give any item to help cut costs even further it will be gratefully received.

     Our funds are also boosted by monthly covenants from people who have discovered how little of their monthly £10 donations are actually spent on causes they supported via more well known, emotive charities. As little as 2p per pound can reach research or beneficiaries --  the balance being spent on overheads and agents who command high wages and claim ludicrous expenses all paid for by public donations.

      The Heart of Darts does not discriminate on illness or disabilites. We help everyone that meets our criteria and we strive to bring help as quickly as possible, without fuss.Nobody gets or claims a wage, we have no hidden "overheads".  More stars are recognising our worth, like Gary Anderson who donated £1,000 , Glen Durrant who has raised more than £3,000 and has at least 5 other fundraisers planned for this year.



   Ambassador Deta is no longer "The Dark Destroyer" , but "The Heart of Darts" and has been doing a marvellous job representing us on T.V while winning more tites to retain her World No 1 position. Countless thanks to the World's Favourite Lady Dartist for her terrific gesture -- we love you even more if that's possible !

  For shirts contact Paul via facebook. Be sure to talk to him about sizing as the polish sizes are smaller than UK standard sizes. We hope to get a permanent size guide from the manufacturer soon.

     I have created a new award, Heart of Darts Heros this award will be entirely at my discretion and is for people i deem to have gone above and beyond the normal high standards our supporters already achieve. For example something at great physical cost or excessively outstanding.

  I am compiling a list of my first recipients and will reveal details when i notified them. It is a way of rewarding folk for actions other than financial - The gold pin and silver star are already in place for high financial achievers.Everyone of you is very dear to me , you are the Charity's life blood and please believe i do value each of you regardless of financial  amounts - £5 can be a great sacrifice to some while £100 is little to others, it is all relevant. I am sure you will understand and approve when all is revealed. Rest assured i do and always will think of each of you as a star and you have my eternal gratitude.

   I must congratulate Sue Baker on her appointment as our first Charity Support Officer - I created this new position to reflect her outstanding work and support for thr Heart of Darts. Of course Sue is an ambassador in the true sense of the word and deserves the accolades she receives.

See Stop Press for really exciting news of support  and recognition by The  English Darts Organisation -- brilliant ! Also news of more purchases that are bringing joy and fresh hope to more of our little people -- your hearts should be glowing with pride, my angels.

My friends, i cannot praise my trustees and Officers highly enough. They are all totally dedicated, compassionate and such a lovely bunch of people. They reflect all that is good not just in darts, but in life generally and I love them.


                                 Bless you all, my darlings , many thanks for

                                    gladdening my reconditioned old heart,

                                               lots of love 'n' hugs
