KEEP BRIDGE ALIVE

The University of Stirling is launching a global ‘Keep Bridge Alive’ CrowdFund campaign to establish the Sociology of Bridge and to communicate messages about the benefits of bridge beyond the bridge world. This emerging academic field explores interactions within the mind sport, well-being, healthy ageing and social connection as experienced in the bridge community. The key goals of this research are to transform the image of bridge, to increase participation and enhance the sustainability of the mind sport.

Please find more info attached in the leaflet and poster or see:  https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/u5c0e5e7810869

Best wishes, and many thanks,
