Newark Café Bridge

3rd November 2020 - Event Cancelled
Our plan to return to Newark in November for our next event has been thwarted by the ongoing Covid restrictions. 

Therefore, unfortunately this event will not be taking place.

We will keep the situation under review and if restrictions are eased we hope to be able to run our next event in April in Nottingham.

Nottingham Café Bridge - 2020

 Unfortunately, due to the Covid 19 restrictions our event, planned for Tuesday 21st April 2020, was cancelled.

 It is unfortunate that our chosen charity, Rainbows Hospice and the Cafés that had committed to hosting our event were affected by this decision, but we were left with no alternative.

However, many of the participants very kindly donated some, or all, of their entrance fee rather than taking a refund and, therefore, we are able to donate £450 to the Rainbows Hospice for Children & Young People. We hope to support them further at our next event in Nottingham.

Our next event, all being well, will be in Newark on 3rd November 2020 when we will once again be supporting the Lincolnshire & Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance. We hope to see you there and will be in contact nearer to the date.

 

Café Bridge - What is it?

Café Bridge has been running in a number of towns and cities for many years. 

A typical Café Bridge event is a duplicate pairs bridge game set up over multiple cafés and restaurants. Pairs move to a new venue after each round, guided by a movement card, while board sets remain on their starting tables throughout. The registration fee includes morning coffee, a 2-course lunch at one of the venues and a glass of wine/soft drink at the end of the day.

The object of each event is to provide an enjoyable day of friendly, sociable, duplicate Bridge for all participants and to generate funds for charity. 

Café Bridge Nottingham continues to be a very successful phenomenon. It combines the fascination of playing the wonderful game of Bridge in a spirit of fun and enjoyment with fundraising on an impressive scale. In the thirteen events since 2012 thousands of £££’s have been donated to charity. Café Bridge Nottingham has become a must go to event! 

Café Bridge Nottingham is organised by a team of volunteers who take no payment for their time and effort so all proceeds from the events are donated to our chosen charity.

We hope that you will join us for the next event. If you would like more information, or to be added to our distribution list, please use the “Contact Us” 

Café Bridge Nottingham - the history

Café Bridge Nottingham continues to be a very successful phenomenon. It combines the fascination of playing the wonderful game of Bridge in a spirit of fun with fundraising on an impressive scale. Phil Meats and Toni Smith started us off eleven events ago in 2012.

Our last happening was on 13th November 2018 when 80 people circulated round five venues all day in Newark and raised £1,500 for Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance.

The picture below shows Karen Carter who gave a presentation about the service. Many people present were astonished to learn that the recently acquired fully equipped helicopter was called upon to answer an emergency three or four times a day. A rota of pilots, doctors, and medics are on call seven days a week and they are supported by an enthusiastic group of volunteers. Karen showed us two photographs of a gravely injured young boy who was rescued by the service, and the same young boy many months later smiling and sitting in the helicopter with the crew, fully recovered - a heartwarming story.
