We're Donating Cash & Free Bets For Centuries
UK Championship sponsor williamhill.com will donate £250 to Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice for every century break made during the nine-day tournament.
The snooker bonanza began at the York Barbican on Saturday and runs until December 9. Every time a player hits the 100 mark, World Snooker's official charity Bluebell Wood, based in Sheffield, will receive a cash boost.
World Snooker Chairman Barry Hearn said: "This is a wonderful gesture from William Hill and hopefully it will add a huge amount to the money we are raising for Bluebell Wood this year. I want to see all the players going for big breaks and piling in the centuries."
William Hill Chief Marketing Officer Kristof Fahy said "Bluebell Wood does some unbelievable work and we're delighted to be able to help them out. Like Barry, We'll be cheering on every ton-plus break in the tournament."
After the first day of the tournament williamhill.com were already £2,250 out of pocket but are delighted to be helping out such a worthwhile cause. For more information on Bluebell Wood see www.bluebellwood.org
