Sam Punch Invites you to join Bridge - It's a Big Deal!

Professor Samantha Punch, from the University of Stirling and founder of Bridge: A. MindSport for All (BAMSA), invites you to join the Bridge - It's a Big Deal! A Festival of Bridge.

The Festival will be held as a series of exciting events nationwide in support of Cancer Research UK from 9th - 15th September - with a goal to raise £60,000 for Cancer Research UK.

We hope that bridge players will come together to celebrate, to spread the word that bridge is a wonderful game and that by working together we can have fun as well as playing our part in helping to beat cancer.


We are inviting all clubs, counties and players to take part in this very special Festival. We hope to see as many clubs and bridge players at this first take on what we hope to be an annual event.

We look forward to this very exciting event and hope you will join us in celebrating the game of bridge by raising money for this important charity.
