The Preston Potter stars!

SNOOKER professional Ian McCulloch was in great form in a charity exhibition at Dickie Pinks last week.

The Preston cueist, who was ranked as high as 16th in the world six years ago, played nine frames in aid of Derian House Children’s Hospice.

The night was a great success and raised £1,035 for the charity. The event was in memory of Jaime Ella Howarth, who sadly died of a brain tumour earlier this year.

The event was organised by Jaime’s uncle, Graham Riley, of GR Billiards, and McCulloch kindly gave his services for free.

McCulloch was in excellent form, and didn’t disappoint, making five century breaks in the nine frames he played, the highest being a run of 121.

Thanks go to Fay at Dickies Pinks, Dennis Taylor of D and D Scaffolding for giving so generously in the charity auctions, Paul Thompson of GB Foods for providing the supper, and everyone else who attended and supported the event.
