Haven House Children's Hospice will benefit from a £200 donation for every century break scored by players in the snooker World Championship which starts today in Sheffield.
The donation pledge has been made by betting company Betfred, the World Championship title sponsor.
Fred Done, the Managing Director of Betfred, said: "For every century break I will donate £200 to the charity and if the players hit more than 75 centuries I will round this up to £25,000."
Haven House Children's Hospice is World Snooker's official charity for this season. The charity is likely to do well from the pledge. In 2009 there were 83 centuries at the championship, 60 in 2010 and 74 in 2011.
The Betfred.com World Championship runs from 21 April to 7 May.
