World Grand Prix title sponsor Ladbrokes will donate £100 for every century break made during this week’s tournament to Jessie May Children’s Hospice at Home.
The tournament at the Guild Hall in Preston runs from Monday to Sunday, with 32 of the world’s top players chasing a first prize of £100,000.
Ronnie O’Sullivan, Mark Selby, Judd Trump, John Higgins and defending champion Shaun Murphy are among those battling for the trophy.
And for every century, Ladbrokes will donate £100 to World Snooker’s official charity. Jessie May Children’s Hospice at Home, based in Bristol, provides a hospice at home service for terminally ill children, offering care to families in the Bristol area.
And should a 147 break be made during the tournament, Ladbrokes will pay the bonus to the player from the rolling prize pot, which currently stands at £5,000.
Adrian Osman from Ladbrokes said: “We’re looking forward to a fantastic week of snooker in Preston with so many of snooker’s biggest stars gunning for the trophy.”
“No doubt the standard on the table will be very high and we hope to see plenty of centuries to give a boost to a fantastic cause in Jessie May.”
“And we would love to see that extra bit of magic with a 147. There have already been ten maximum breaks this season so bring on the eleventh!”
