WORLD number two snooker star Mark Selby took a break from potting his way through the China Open qualifiers at Quedgeley Snooker Academy to add his voice to the Stop the Heartbreak appeal.

The University of Gloucestershire is urging donations to reach its £7,000 target to make 200 cardiac screenings free of charge. Young people aged 14-35 can benefit from the free health checks at a special weekend at The Oxstalls Campus on April 8-9.

And Mark is now calling on snooker fans across Gloucester to join him in supporting the campaign.

Students are also getting in on the act.
