This page gives details of all our Junior fundraising efforts and donations towards Youth Bridge and Junior International teams
Raising money for Juniors
The next event on the horizon for juniors is the Channel Trophy in late Dec. Funding needs to be raised for this. It will be around £8,000 for the event.
Following that the juniors will be competing in the European Championships in summer 2024.
Donations for the either/both of the above two events will be gratefully received.

How to support young players
Young people are the future of our game and we are keen to support them in every way. Funds are limited and we invite donations to help with some of the costs.
If you would like to help fund future youth events, please make a donation using the link below. You can donate in any multiple of £10; just click Add to cart and then specify the number you want. For example, to donate £50 you would order a quantity of 5.
We would like to acknowledge donors by listing them on this page. If you would prefer not to be listed, change the option Public to Private.
Bridge for young people is not just a matter of competitions, but a broad and critically important topic including working with schools, universities and other organizations. Along with our partners in EBED we will be offering more ways to support this work in future.
