Several stars of the PDC, including Tam Unicorn stars Devon Petersen and Jamie Caven, got their hands on the Olympic Torch at the Players Championship in Crawley on Sunday.
The Olympic Torch was brought to Crawley by injured soldier Jamie Cooper, who was recognised recently not only for his amazing recovery to injuries suffered in Iraq in 2006 but also for his charity work.
The 23-year-old was one of the Olympic Torchbearers through Bristol in May and took his Torch to Sunday's tournament, where the Unicorn pair, plus World Champion Adrian Lewis, Steve Beaton, Steve Brown and Dennis Smith were amongst players to have their picture taken with the iconic piece of memorabilia.
Cooper was the youngster soldier to be injured in Iraq when he was caught in a double mortar blast, and during a two-year stay in hospital he confounded medical experts who had said he would never walk again.
As part of his work for the 'Help For Heroes' charity, he has linked up with Steve Brown to arrange a special exhibition night on August 10 at the Royal British Legion in Kingswood, Bristol, which will also feature PDC walk-on girl Nicola Cowell.
"Jamie's a huge inspiration to me and hopefully the night can raise plenty of money for 'Help For Heroes'," said Brown.
Cooper was treated as part of his recovery at the Headley Court Rehabilitation Centre, which has been visited by a host of leading PDC players in recent years.
