The BCA continues to benefit from Julia Scott’s excellent work. The income she brings in enables us to plan ahead for future tournaments and to buy adapted chess sets and clocks in batches, saving us money.

We were sad to lose some long-standing members earlier this year. Friends of Geoff Patching, Les Whittle and Bob Brown have given the BCA donations in their memory. Geoff Patching left the BCA a legacy of £2,000 which is to be spent on our Gazette.

If you shop online, please consider signing up to Give as you Live and help raise funds for the BCA at no extra cost to you. If you would like more information then please ask me.
