Generous donation made in memory of Snooker legend, Paul Hunter

In 2006, World Class Snooker player, Paul Hunter, aged only 27, spent his final days at Kirkwood. Since then, many of Paul’s family and friends have raised thousands in Paul’s memory.

In his short career, Paul achieved a tremendous amount of success, including winning the prestigious Masters Tournament three times in the space of four years.

There is widespread belief amongst snooker experts that Paul would have gone on to become a multiple World Snooker Champion. 

At the beginning of December, we were delighted to welcome Paul’s friend, Jason Pegram (a former professional snooker player himself), and his wife, Andrea, to Kirkwood.

The couple made a special trip from Essex to personally present us with an incredible donation of £5,350, which was made on behalf of all those who played with Paul.

On behalf of everyone at Kirkwood, we would like to thank Paul’s colleagues and friends for this most generous donation.
