Meanwhile here are some events/announcements worth our attention.
Jimmy White will do a Charity Exhibition on July, 31, to support the foundation that helped Jamie Curtis-Barret’s family when they needed it the most
Jamie Curtis- Barret is organising this exhibition and monies go to to the local charity that helped him, his wife and family when she was terminally ill a few years ago.
Jamie’s wife, Leanne, was diagnosed with breast cancer aged only 27. She was expecting the couple’s second child, a son named Freddie. They already had a 3 years old daughter, Georgia. Leanne fought with all she had, but survived only 3 more years. Needless to say, every help is precious is such terrible circumstances.
Jamie wants to give something back to those who supported his family. Jimmy is keen to help and aher his performance in the World Seniors sure to be a good evening.
If you ca go, wonderful! If not … please share!
