EBU makes donations to Macmillan Cancer Support and EBED

The EBU is pleased to have made donations to Macmillan Cancer Support and English Bridge Education and Development, on behalf of its members.

Whenever a club holds a charity event a special, reduced licence fee is paid to the EBU, and the EBU periodically donates the collated fees to charity. The funds collected for the financial year 2014/15 have been donated to Macmillan to support their work, with £1343.50 given to help fund more nurses and therapists to help people through cancer treatment.

The funds for 2015/16 - £1191.61 - have been donated to EBED, the national charity for bridge, to help support the development of the game in England and bring the benefits the game offers to a wider audience.
