Sherrock – doing charity after winning charity championships

Sherrock is one of two rare women participating in this year’s world darts championship. From mockery, the public crowd quickly went crazy about the young woman. Her talent makes people quickly admit, and her life has changed completely since then. After passing the second round, the invitation to play an advertisement and appear on television was sent back to Sherrock.

But most importantly, the hobby of throwing darts has now become the main source of income, preventing her from having to live on social benefits. Each of her matches now earns her tens of thousands of pounds. Several sponsors are also waiting in line to work with her. In addition, Sherrock is also seen as a pioneer paving the way for women to compete in international men’s darts competitions.
Do charity after winning
After having enough money to cover his son’s hospital fees, Sherrock immediately donated money to the British Association for the Support of Autistic Children. To raise money, she used the dart-throwing plaque from her historic world championship win as an auction. In addition, she also mobilized other celebrities to help her in social work related to autistic children. The amount raised so far has reached several thousand pounds.
“Who says women can’t do it?”
At the moment, Sherrock is only ranked 4th in the list of the world’s top female dart throwing athletes. Therefore, she believes that this sport has a lot of potential for development for women in the future. Her victory proved people’s prejudice against men in darts to be wrong. A few other female athletes have prepared to compete with the men in the next tournaments, through which it is possible to have a female champion in the future.

Wayne Warren confirmed surely not to return his BDO World Championship trophy

Gaining a lot of titles and finally becoming the BDO World Champion Wayne Warren has recently confirmed not hand back his World Championship trophy under any conditions despite the fact that the BDO’s commercial arm is on its way of being bankrupted.

Warren 58 officially became the owner of BDO World Champion for the first time at London’s Indigo at The O2 in January and throughout the 30 year history of this tournament, he was the one to receive the lowest reward.

For the champion reign, Welshman was just rewarded £23,000 for his efforts and a bonus £77,000 reduction on his first prize won by Glen Durrant 12 months before his championship.

Not long ago, Warren used to utilize the word “nightmare” in spite of “dream” to describe this World Championship win and has expressed his disapproval towards the BDO Chairman Des Jacklin.

Last month, the BDO’s commercial branch surprisingly annouced their attention – British Darts Organisation Enterprises Ltd – to opt for liquidation.

That liquidation is now on its way of being executed soon which almost puts an end to the glorious period lasting 40 years and ceases many historic tournaments such as the World Masters and World Championship.

The end of these prestigious trophies is still remaining as a puzzle, and Warren has insisted on keeping his silverware until he receives enough the amount of money which he feels himself to be deserved with.

On Facebook, Warren wrote: ‘Until I get what’s owed to me, that trophy won’t be going nowhere I can assure you of that.

The wife of the reigning World Masters champion John O’Shea recently made a comment saying that: ‘John will be keeping the World Masters Trophy along with you.’

At the beginning of this month, a new amateur darts organization namedly ‘MAD’ was put into public, which is headed by Junior Darts Corporation Chairman Steve Brown and it has recently been endorsed by the reaction coming from Phil Taylor and Raymond van Barneveld.

MAD is planned to officially be launched in 2021. The tournament will be open to all non-professional players.
