Lanark Simul – December 21

Lanark Chess Club held a fun night to celebrate the life of Tom Brown and would like to thank everyone who helped us raise over £300 on the night which takes Lanark Chess Clubs efforts to over £400. This combined with the amount raised during his memorial takes the fundfaising to about £2000 thus far. Again special thanks to all including the donor of the prizes, as well as Pat Coffrey and Michael Hanley who contributed so much on the night. All in all it was a tremendous success and we all enjoyed ourselves. Finally thanks to those who also brought refreshments which was very much appreciated as well as those who sent donations via post.
