Romford Snooker Club is hosting a charity session with 2015 World Snooker Champion Stuart Bingham to help raise funds for Saint Francis Hospice.

Anyone can put their name in the hat for a game with the former champ.

It’s being staged by owner Richard Willis on General Election day on Thursday (July 4).

“We are running this charity snooker to support the great work of the hospice,” Richard told this paper. “Saint Francis and its hard-working team are well-regarded in the snooker world.”

Bingham knocked out the likes of Ronnie O'Sullivan, Judd Trump and Shaun Murphy on the way to glory at the Crucible in 2015.

He also reached the semi-finals at this year's world championship.

Barry Hearn, founder and president of Matchroom Sport, is also expected to attend the evening.

Richard, now 76, has been running the club for more than 30 years.

It is where legendary champion Steve Davis was spotted in the 1970s by Hearn, who used to own the club.

Davis went on to be world champion six times and both himself and Hearn are patrons of the hospice.

Nicknamed the Nugget, Davis returned to the club in 2008 for an exhibition evening to mark the club’s 75th anniversary.

Many of today’s top professionals have graced the tables at Arcade Place, with the club dubbing itself "probably the most famous snooker club in the world".

Romford Snooker Club was also used for scenes in the film Jack Said about an undercover cop infiltrating a notorious gang of criminals, starring Danny Dyer and Simon Phillips.

It featured snooker legend Jimmy White in his first acting role playing snooker club owner Vic Lee.

Chas and Dave also recorded their 1980s hit Snooker Loopy at the club, with many famous snooker players in the chorus.

The lucky Table 13 where Steve Davis was first spotted has been kept to this day — even though there are only 12 tables.

The July 4 charity session at Arcade Place, off South Street, starts at 8pm, with tickets from £10.
