Six-times world champion Steve Davis gave snooker fans a real treat when he appeared at the Winchester for an exhibition. ‘The Nugget’ took on club members and gave the packed audience a dazzling display of trick shots. The Winchester owner Mukesh Parmar said: “It was an absolute privilege to have Steve here. It was a fantastic night enjoyed by all. He’s a true legend and a great ambassador for snooker.”

The evening helped raise £827.29 for LOROS, and Mukesh added: “Thank you to everyone who donated items for the auction, to everyone who helped and, of course, to Steve.”

World No.1 and Leicester’s very one, Mark Selby, officially opened the newly refurbished “The Winchester” by playing an exhibition with Leicester football legends Steve Walsh, Muzzy Izzet and members of the club.

A big thank you from everyone at The Winchester and LOROS to Mark, Steve and Muzzy who all voluntarily gave their time for a worthy cause.
