Preston BC opens new facilities thanks to lottery grant

Preston Bridge Club have recently celebrated the official opening of their new facilities, with EBU Chairman Jeremy Dhondy joining them at the event. You can read more about the opening in the Lancashire Post Online.

The project was helped by funding from The Big Lottery, which enabled the purchase of new equipment, including Bridgemates, dealing machines, computers and kitchen equipment. They were aided in the application process by Third Sector Consultancy (TSC), who have also helped Somerset CBA's application, and are currently working with English Bridge Education & Development.

Any clubs or counties thinking of applying for lottery funding through Awards for All may wish to use TSC's services. Either contact them directly, or contact Club Liaison Officer, Bev Purvis (, who can put you in touch with them.
