Laurie Champniss: 1939 - 2017

The EBU is sad to learn of the death of Laurie Champniss. Laurie was the founder of South Bucks Bridge Centre, one of the country's busiest bridge clubs. In 2015, he generously donated the club to English Bridge Education & Development* - he is pictured (right) making the donation to then General Manager, Barry Capal.

* - EBED continues to coordinate a large teaching programme at the club, although it ceased running the club in 2016.
