Brentwood's new Saint Francis Hospice store has been opened by snooker legend Steve Davis.

The six-time world snooker champion cut the ribbon on June 15, before mingling with staff, volunteers and shoppers at the High Street store.

Also a patron of the hospice, Steve pledged to donate some of his snooker cues to help it continue its vital work.

“This is important - if we want Saint Francis Hospice to be there for people in the future, we have to make sure we are there for it now - and what an easy way to do it.

“Every donation and every purchase made helps local people in need of hospice care," he said.
