World snooker’s finest help Woodford Green hospice with century breaks
A Woodford Green charity will be hoping more century breaks at the World Snooker Championship could lead to a �25,000 bonanza.
Betfred, the betting company which sponsors the tournament, has pledged �200 to Haven House Children’s Hospice in High Road each time a player gets past the 100 mark in Sheffield.
The charity, which helps children with life-limiting conditions, is already in line to get �11,600 after 58 century breaks.
And it could get even better if there are a flurry of centuries as the tournament reaches its conclusion over the bank holiday weekend.
Fred Done, Betfred’s chief executive, said: “If the players hit more than 75 centuries I will round this up to �25,000.”
