BRITISH SUGAR 'A'  POOL TEAM, BURY ST EDMUNDS, CHARTIY EVENT 2006

EADT COMMUNITY NEWSA charity minded pool team from Bury St Edmunds has handed over around £2,000

A charity minded pool team from Bury St Edmunds handed over £2,000 to the town's St Nicholas Hospice back in 1976. The British Sugar "A" team from the Wednesday Night club pool league staged a 24-hour pool marathon, playing over 200 games through the day and night. Local businesses kindly supported the challenge with items for a silent auction which boosted the original £1,000 target to double. The charity minded players had been together for well over 20 years and have staged six 12-hour marathons for charity in the past but this was their first all day event.
