Lindsey Horton, Corporate Partnerships Officer for Jessie May, said: “We are so grateful to Coral for their generous donation to Jessie May, and to all the players for making so many century breaks. What a fantastic start to the Home Nations series!”

Simon Clare, Coral PR Director, added: “We are delighted that we were able to support such a worthy charity with such a fun mechanic, and thanks to the quality of snooker at the Coral English Open, over sixty centuries were scored, we are thrilled to be handing over a cheque for £3,150.”
