We wish Liz Gahan and teammates, and Andy Cope and teammates, the very best of luck in the 17th World Youth Teams Championships being held in Wujiang, China, from 8th to 18th August. Andy and Liz are representing their respective teams, Under 26 Women, Under 16s. Also competing are the Under 21s and the Under 26s. A list of the English teams is available here.
All England Junior teams qualified at the 2017 European Junior Teams Championship, the first time all the junior teams have qualified for a World Championship, so a huge well done to them all.
Our members participated in a special fund raising event, raising £1000, to support the EBU and the junior teams.
For the past 19 years the charity, Chernobyl Children’s Project (UK), has provided a four week recuperative holiday in Solihull for children from Belarus, whose lives are affected by the Chernobyl disaster over 30 years ago. Each year a different group of children enjoy a wonderful holiday, with many trips and activities. They stay for two weeks with local host families and then two more weeks in residential accommodation.
12 teenagers, age 13-15, are taking part in this year’s holiday, all of whom are in remission from cancer. Most of this summer’s group have endured leukemia and other blood cancers, also Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, Neuroblastoma and spinal cancer. Many of the children have had bone marrow transplants and four have also lost a parent. They are accompanied by a doctor and two interpreters.
Kath Ruane, Solihull Co-ordinator, says ‘We have planned four weeks of fun and activities; they always have amazing enthusiasm, a love of life, and enjoy everything we do, and so they return with wonderful memories. It’s amazing to see how much their health benefits from fresh air and healthy, uncontaminated food. Doctors say this boosts the children’s immune system for at least two years, helping them to recover from serious illness. We also see a huge boost to their self-confidence and happiness.’
As part of the activities this year, West Midlands Bridge Club organised a session of Minibridge, which was enjoyed by everyone who took part.
Our Christmas Charity Bridge Drive this year will be in aid of the Chernobyl Children’s Project.

Café Bridge is a Coventry event this year, being held in the Belgrade Plaza area of the city.
We are inviting you to join us for a fun, relaxing day playing friendly duplicate bridge in a variety of cafes and bars within very easy walking distance.
We will all meet at Café Rouge at 10.30am for registration and coffee, where you will be given playing instructions for the day.
We will play at 4 delightful venues – Café Rouge, Bella Italia, Pizza express and the Belgrade theatre.
After the third round at around 1.15pm you will be served with lunch at the venue you have just played.
When you finish around 3.30pm you make your way back to Café Rouge for a complimentary coffee or tea, an optional glass of wine and the prize-giving.
Cost for the day’s bridge, which includes coffee or tea at the start, lunch, tea/coffee and a glass of wine at the end and the entry fee, is £25 per player, payable when booking your place.
