More about Worcester's Café Bridge events - (currently in aid of ACORN'S CHILDREN'S HOSPICE - we have raised nearly £300 in our events so far)
Cafe Bridge is a new thing which is taking off all around the country (and abroad), but especially in the London area; Cafe Bridge events have been held in Nottingham, Wimbledon, Barnes, Henley, Richmond, Newark and other places; most notably, Bromsgrove held the first Worcestershire-based event last October, and are repeating theirs' this autumn. The Richmond June event has just set a new record of 77 tables!
Most Cafe Bridge events are focused on making money for charities, and whilst we do intend to give all surplus funds to charity, our main priority is to promote the game of Bridge in Worcester, hopefully drawing attention to the growth of Daytime Bridge in the County, as well as making sure everyone has a great time and a good lunch! (plus coffee, cakes etc!)
We have now run three events: Sept 2017 (three cafes); Christmas Party 2017 (at Elgar's) and April 2018 (at Bolero's caffe) - it has proved possible to do either multi-cafe events OR single cafe - each have logistical issues to be resolved, but we like a challenge!
Our September 2018 "Bridge@TheHive" event is another innovation: whilst there will be no lunch involved (it's a 1-30pm start), we will be playing in three or four different locations in the magnificent "Hive" library. In terms of raisng the profile, this should be a great opportunity to capture the attention of Worcester's residents!
