Two Saltash friends hope to break a darts world record, as they rally round a mate with cancer.

Chris Lewis and Paul Sweet need to beat 42 hours continuous play at The Cecil Arms.

They are doing it to support Cancer Research after the landlord was diagnosed.

Chris told Pirate FM: "Mike Holman, the landlord of The Cecil Arms is a great man and we wanted to do something to show our support for him and other cancer sufferers alike. We also wanted recognition for the staff on Brent Ward in Derriford Hospital as their care and dedication makes the stay on the ward a lot more comfortable"

"We are hoping to complete the entire 48+ hours play and will send the recording away for analysis, in the hope that it will be verified as a new world record."

Penny Woodman, Cancer Research UK's area volunteer manager for Cornwall and Plymouth, said: "We are absolutely delighted that Chris and Paul have decided to attempt such a great challenge to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

"Preparations are well underway and we're sure they're going to have an amazing experience.  We can't thank them enough for all their support and want to wish them all the very best with their World Record attempt'.

Penny  added: "Cancer Research UK has made enormous progress in the fight against cancer and continues to do so. However, we have only been able to do this thanks to the dedication and commitment of our volunteers and supporters without whom we would not be able to fund our vital research."
