A RISING snooker star, who faced a former world champion at the tender age of 11, is now gearing up for a new feat.
However, James Bradley is not just aiming for victories on the green baize but also to raise money for a noble cause.
Having impressed audiences with his skills by challenging 1997 world champion Ken Doherty during a visit to Stockport’s Moor Club, the 13-year-old from Hyde is embarking on a new journey.
This time, though, it is not about his prowess on the table but about making a meaningful impact on the lives of those affected by dementia.
On Saturday, August 12, Hyde Snooker Club will transform into a hub of activity as James undertakes a challenging 12-hour snookerthon from 10am until 10pm to support a cause that is close to his heart.
His efforts will benefit Tameside-based charity Forget Me Not Buddies, which is dedicated to assisting individuals and families impacted by dementia.
For those who wish to be a part of this inspiring endeavour, the opportunity to play against James is as simple as making a contribution to the charity.
