BoyleSports will show their support for Parkinson's UK at the forthcoming BoyleSports World Grand Prix, which takes place from October 3-9 at Leicester’s Morningside Arena.
The leading bookmaker are the title sponsor for the unique double-start event, and they have pledged a donation of £500 for every match in which their "Full House" market is achieved during the 2022 World Grand Prix.
This requires a player to win their match, as well as hitting the most 180s and the highest checkout in the process.
The sponsors donated £10,000 to Parkinson's UK last year after enhancing the total raised following a week of stellar darts at the 2021 BoyleSports World Grand Prix, which saw Jonny Clayton claim his maiden double-start title.
The Welshman boosted the pot by £1,000 after hitting two of the twelve full houses during the seven nights of action, meaning a total of £6,000 had been raised by the time he hit the final double to see off compatriot Gerwyn Price in the final.
Following last year’s showpiece, BoyleSports announced that they would boost the pot further, taking the total donation to £10,000.
Leon Blanche, Head of Communications for BoyleSports said: “Many of us know someone affected by Parkinson’s and we are pleased to champion a charity close to so many peoples’ hearts.
With the likes of defending champion Jonny Clayton, Gerwyn Price, Michael van Gerwen and Dave Chisnall taking part, we are certain we’ll see the full house landing throughout the week and we’ll be cheering on each and every player knowing that it will support such a worthy cause.”
Former Sky Sports darts presenter Dave Clark is a high-profile supporter of the organisation, and he added: “A big thank you to BoyleSports for once again supporting Parkinson’s UK, a cause that is close to my heart.
"I’ve been living with Parkinson’s for 11 years now. It’s not always been easy, it’s a relentless and unpredictable condition, but I’m determined to stay positive and live the best possible life I can.
"There are around 145,000 people in the UK who like me, face the daily challenges that Parkinson’s can throw at you – so finding new and better treatments just can’t wait.
“Parkinson's UK have made huge breakthroughs in the last 50 years, but there is still no cure and current treatments are not good enough, and the money raised during the BoyleSports World Grand Prix will help drive that forward and make a big difference to everyone living with Parkinson's.”
