The Grenfell Fire Pairs
I think we have now had all the funds in from clubs that took part in the Grenfell Fire Pairs, and today I will be sending £7,066.80 to Paddy Murphy, who was the organiser, who will send it on to the Charity. Paddy asks me to thank all those of you who took part and donated so generously to this appeal.

Are we totally mad doing this again ? Yes of course we are but we love it. So please join us if you can and let's see if we can raise another amazing amount of money. Our - or rather your - total to date is £ 881,950.09 !!! This year it all kicks off on Friday 10th November, with heats that night, then on the Monday (13th), Tuesday 14th, Wednesday 15th and Thursday 16th - different hands each night of course for this one - More information here ...
The December Celtic Pairs is being run by the NIBU this year, but we will of course be scoring it and can also take entries and pass them on. It starts on Monday 4th December and different hands are played on Tuesday 4th, Wednesday 6th and then a different set again for Thursday AND Friday (7th & 8th) combined. More information here ....
The January Charity Pairs
I am sure you are aware that each year we run a Charity Pairs in the last week of January, with no prizes, no master points, no set entry fee, just join in and play the hands and raise some money for our given charity. We don't decide on the charity to benefit until nearer the time, so that we can react to a crisis if needed. Otherwise the funds go to UNICEF. So - do join us if you can. Just email me with your club name, who to send the files to and the day you want to play. Different hands are available for each day from 22nd - 27th January 2018. More information ...
WBU St David's Day Pairs
The end of February / beginning of March sees the WBU St David's Day Pairs taking place - more details of this and how to enter can be found by clicking here. It runs over 5 days with different hands each night, starting on Monday 26th February.
The ECatsBridge Charity Challenge Pairs
The Charity for 2018 is, for us, very special - it will be for RNLI and we are looking at the possibility not only of running a master point event on Thursday 8th March but hopefully of having anotehr set of hands to be played for fun any night of the week. we won't be allowed to award overall points for that unfortunately - only for the Thursday night session (and then for the English clubs they must be affiliated to the EBU) but we want to raise as much as we can for this wonderful Charity - please click here (please please click here) to find out why we are doing it for RNLI this year.
