Hello darlings, everywhere. 


I have had several requests to leave most of the last "Chat" on site as it is a clear demonstration of our workings and helps regular supporters to encourage new friends by directing them to read the article. Your wish is my command.


​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 disabilities. 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 and Glen Durrant who has raised more than £3,000 and has other fundraisers planned for this year. They join the many other illustrious players who support our Charity. 


Deta - "The Heart Of Darts" - Continues stacking up International titles. Perhaps someone can tell me if she now holds the World record for titles won? If not, she must be close. Let me know, please. Meantime, carry on Madam Ambassador and add that missing big one to your shed full.  

     

  For shirts contact Paul via Facebook. Be sure to talk to him about sizing as the Polish sizes are smaller than UK standard sizes. Paul has a size guide in English inches now.

     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 rest assured 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. Please believe I do and always will think of each of you as a star and you have my eternal gratitude. 


Many thanks to the E.D.O. for adopting us as their chosen Charity. Please try to support their events as they support us. 


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 

                                                                                Ian
