OLYMPIC champion Jessica Ennis was a winner for Sheffield Children’s Hospital as she opened a £13m casino in the city centre.

The heptathlete cut the ribbon at the Genting Club in Arundel Gate, then took part in a game called Black v Red in which she had to catch as many balls as possible in 30 seconds as they were blown about in a glass box to generate a cash prize.

It resulted in her donating £5,000 to the Children’s Hospital, of which she is patron.

Jess and her fiance Andy Hill rubbed shoulders with celebrities including stars from TV soap Emmerdale Charley Webb and Lucy Pargeter and Sky Sports presenter Charlie Webster.

Sheffield Wednesday and United players were among the VIPs.

After a nine-month redevelopment project, the casino is open 24 hours a day under the ‘cheesegrater’ multi-storey car park. Spread over two floors, it has two restaurants – the Fahrenheit and the Hou Mei Asian cafe.
