Could you help out with mini bridge in Middlesex?

Do you have children, grandchildren or other young relatives of school age? An exciting new project has been launched to bring the many benefits of learning to play bridge to children in schools in London and surrounding areas, as part of a wider initiative in the UK and Ireland. New Tricks, a UK registered charity (www.newtricksschools.org), is part of a drive to enable the teaching of minibridge in primary schools.

If you would like your young relatives and their friends to benefit from this project via their school, please make contact with Sue Johnson via the New Tricks website (link above) or by email: sue@newtricksschools.org.  The charity will provide you with details to send to the school or they will make the approach directly if you provide a point of contact.

If you have an hour or two each week to spare, you can get involved in the project as a volunteer.  You don’t need to be a great bridge player and New Tricks will provide all of the training, support and resources that you need.  It’s a joy to teach children of this age and to see their enthusiasm for the game so please do get in touch with New Tricks and help in whatever capacity works for you.
