Marham snooker club raises �1,300 for H4H

Six members from the RAF Marham Snooker Club recently took part in a 24 hour doubles snooker match to raise money for Help for Heroes.

However, this was no ordinary snooker match, as each player was required to wear their NBC suit whilst playing each shot.

Again thinking that this was too easy, it was also decided that each team would have to score a minimum of 1470 points throughout the 24 hour period.

This worked out that every 30 seconds; one point per team must be scored for them to have any chance of succeeding within the 24 hour time frame.

Corporal Kaberry along with Senior Aircraftsmen Rhodes, Flint, Cook, Armitage and Hutton all took part in the event raising �1,300 for Help for Heroes.

The snooker match was followed by a charity raffle, which was a huge success raising almost half of the total amount which was raised.

The prizes were donated by various local businesses from around King's Lynn and also businesses at Marham.

Corporal Kaberry said 'Without these kind donations we would not have been able to reach our target of �1000, so a massive 'thank you' to all that helped us along our way.'

He added the Snooker Club would also like to thank everybody who either donated to or supported the event.
