The HBA Charity for 2019-20

Proposals for next season's charity are still required!! 

The HBA normally supports 1 or 2 charities each year, preferably small local charities that will feel the benefit of our relatively small donation. Our nominated charity for 2017-18 was the Rennie Grove Hospice and through the Marjorie Lukyn, we raised £1,299 for them.  

Nominations should be sent to the HBA secretary by email, no later than May 10th, 2019. Please supply your contact details and any additional information about the charity that you can.

Congratulations to all those achieving new master point promotions, with particular mention to Tugrul Kaban who is now a Grand Master. Click here.. to see the March list.
