Sandra Claridge

Tony Priday Award 2023:

Sandra has been a volunteer for her county, Oxfordshire, for more than forty years, for much of which she was its Membership Secretary and EBU Shareholder.

During that time, she also gave long service to the EBU as the secretary of the Laws & Ethics Committee and the Selection Committee and was also for a number of years the EBU Office Manager.

For most of its existence Sandra has been the secretary of Bridge Great Britain, in which role she has single-handedly organised the Gold Cup and Silver Plate each year as well as over-seeing the Camrose, Lady Milne, Teltscher, Junior Camrose and Peggy Bayer Trophies. Whenever the EBU and other NBOs of the British Isles have had any part in organising international events, Sandra has been involved. 

That the international standing of British bridge is as good as it is in no small part due to the tireless efforts of Sandra Claridge.
