English Open title sponsor Coral will donate £50 to Jessie May Children’s Hospice At Home for every century break made during the seven days of the tournament.
The Coral English Open runs until Sunday at Event City in Manchester, with 128 of the world’s best players competing for the title.
Jessie May Children’s Hospice at Home, based in Bristol, has become World Snooker’s official charity partner for the 2016/17 season. Jessie May provides a hospice at home service for terminally ill children, offering care to families in the Bristol area.
Lindsey Horton, Corporate Partnerships Officer for Jessie May, said: “We are thrilled to receive this incredible support from Coral which will help raise much needed funds. We hope the players will be knocking in centuries all week to get the total up!”
Simon Clare, Coral PR Director, added: “When World Snooker told us about the Jessie May Hospice, we were only too pleased to be able to help such an exceptionally deserving cause.”
