Linda Wins Ladies Dart ChampionshipMonday 3 February, 2020
Linda from Elgin, achieved fantastic success when she recently won her local Ladies Darts Championship. After playing incredibly well and securing first place in the competition, the size of Linda’s giant winner’s trophy could only be matched by her huge beaming smile. “I like the darts very much,” said Linda. “I’m very happy when I win the trophies, it’s great fun!”
Staff members and volunteers from Inspire supported Linda to get involved with the darts club after identifying that it might be a good opportunity. Right from the start, Linda really enjoyed it, particularly the social aspect of the club and making new friends.
Not only is Linda clearly a fantastic darts player, but being part of the club has also hugely increased her confidence and self-esteem and provided much better inclusion within the community. She also volunteers with fundraising events for the club, including helping to run stalls at local fairs, participating in sponsored walks and organising raffles.
“Support staff have done an excellent job enabling Linda to attend the darts club, increasing her independence and self-esteem through it,” said Fiona Lawless, Team Coordinator. “Linda now has a whole group of new friends and her confidence has improved very much through her participation.”
