The UK Seniors Snooker Championship returns to the Bonus Arena, Hull in January and together with the Lord Mayor and World Seniors Snooker they are launching a new initiative call 50 FOR FIFTY.
The initiative is designed to assist the ageing population of the City currently living in isolation, residential care or suffering from any Mental Health issues.
The event will feature icons of the sport including Jimmy White, Stephen Hendry, Dennis Taylor, John Parrott and Ken Doherty and the scheme gives the opportunity to use these Snooker greats to enhance the life of those people over 50 who for one of many reasons may now find themselves lonely and missing the interaction of others.
Businesses in the city can be part of the scheme by purchasing 50 discounted tickets for the event which will go directly to local organisations to distribute to residents affected who can attend the tournament and watch their heroes live in action.
The UK Seniors Snooker takes place 4-7 January 2022. Original tickets for the event remain valid.
