Six snooker-loopy men pot the red and screw back for 24 hours at charity marathon

SIX tireless snooker fanatics potted throughout the night at a 24-hour charity marathon at the weekend.

Geoff Philips, Keith Heading, Colin Johnson, Brian Upton, Mark Pulley and Bob Kirby took to the baize at Chatteris Conservative Club on Saturday afternoon to begin their mammoth day-long challenge.

They were all raising money for the Cancer and Specialist Care Clinical Business Unit of the Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

The six men completed 92 frames during the 24 hours with Bob Kirky achieving the highest score of 102 and Geoff Philips the highest break of 27.

MP Steve Barclay will present a cheque to a unit representative from the trust on July 16 at the Con club before a BBQ will be enjoyed.
