Treasurer’s Report

Les Whittle sent the BCA a cheque from Morpeth Chess Club, where he is president. Les said they held a fund raising simultaneous display evening, with their member Roger Coathup playing 21 opponents at once. This is the 6th cheque the BCA has been given by them since 2011 and makes a total of £645 that Morpeth Chess Club has raised for us.

David Hodgkins’ colleagues in Apex Credit Management Ltd have raised a spectacular £19,544.35 for the BCA over the last year in David’s memory. We are extremely grateful to them for honouring David in this way. They have also said that the BCA is their chosen charity to support for this coming year too.

Our wonderful fundraiser Julia Scott continues to bring us income with some generous donors. We are pleased to have her continued support.

Lastly, I would like to thank everyone else who has donated money to the BCA, however grand or modest it is all appreciated.

Gill Smith
