Thank you to all members who took part in the Aid for Ukraine Sim Pairs on Mon 11, Tue 12 and Wed 13 Apr.  Between you, you have donated £310 to this very worthwhile cause.  Two pairs finished in the top 5% in the national rankings in their respective sessions:  Richard Turner and David Paine were 6th out of the 624 pairs who took part in Tuesday’s session; Maureen Jones and Karen Hicks finished 16th out of 583 overall on Wednesday’s event.  Very well played!
