Members of a snooker club held a 24-hour marathon match to raise money for charity.

Eight members of the Bourne Pyramid Social and Snooker Club in West Street, Bourne, played their favourite game for 24-hours to raise money for Cancer Research UK, supported by fellow members.

The club members took part in a similar marathon session last year in aid of the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance and raised more than £1,000, and they are hoping to match that total with this year’s efforts.

The members who participated were Steven Sharpe, James Sharpe, Peter Sharpe-Grose, Adrian Sharpe, Neil Maclean, Marcus Hamilton, John Clapton and Matthew Allen.

There was also a live singer to entertain both members and non-members, as well as a buffet and a grant raffle.
