Mental Health & Annual Awards

As many of you will know, Hammersmith Chess Club is a proud supporter and champion of our local branch of Mental Health Charity, MIND, having taken part in a wonderful day of fund-raising with them earlier this year, in Lyric Square in the heart of Hammersmith.

These wonderful people work to improve and support the Mental Health of our fellow citizens of the fine Borough of Hammersmith & Fulham.

As part of their work to mark World Mental Health Day, our local MIND branch will be returning to Lyric Square on Tuesday 10th October, and are looking for volunteers to help with their activities and fund-raising.

The team are looking for a handful of people to help out between the hours of 10am and 4pm. Even if you can only offer an hour or two, your support would be hugely welcomed.

Our efforts are being coordinated by John White – if you’d like to get involved, please drop John an email:

Any support is enormously appreciated.
