Calling all Hammers!! – we need your help on Saturday 19th May as we take chess back to the streets of Hammersmith & help our local branch of MIND raise money for a good cause!
As you may have read this week – we are returning to Lyric Square, W6 next month for a day of chess, activities and fundraising. Your support is critical – and we want to smash this out of the park.
It was a massive, massive success when we did this last year, and a brilliant day out for all involved, raising over £400 for MIND.
We need help with logistics, leafleting, playing chess, taking contact details & new inquiries, fundraising and much more. Even if you can only spare a few hours between the hours of 9am and 4pm, we will be enormously grateful!
If you’re willing to get involved – brilliant! Please drop John an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We need to know how many of you are willing to help out ASAP – so please get in touch by Friday 4th May, so that we can plan accordingly!
The Return of Summer Chess
Yes, the rumours are correct… after a truly amazing first season, the Summer Chess League is back for 2018!
It’s going to be even bigger & better this year with the number of team entries having doubled from last time – not including the many clubs still to confirm their entries – and Hammer looking to field an additional couple of teams from last time too! We’re also aiming to introduce a divisional structure to help even out the matches & retain the competitiveness.
Nevermind the Summer of Love – this will be the Summer of Chess!
As with last year, the league will be played over five Tuesday evenings, all at Battersea’s spacious, technologically advanced & beer-fuelled home venue.
Final details are still to be confirmed, but rest assured – you will be the first to know!
