A snooker fan has potted a top prize thanks to the March branch of Barnardo’s.

Jude Gary-Hines Hope scooped the prize of meeting Fen snooker star Joe Perry after Barnardo’s on Gas Road held a snooker-themed event which involved staff dressing up in different colours to represent snooker balls.

They also held a raffle and the main prize – a snooker cue signed by Perry, Jimmy White and Ronny O’Sullivan – was won by Jude.

She said: “I can’t believe I have actually won. I love snooker and to get to meet Joe Perry too is the icing on the cake.

“I regularly shop at the store and I can’t praise the team highly enough for all the effort they have made.”
