Bridge players raised an impressive amount for a hospice with Welwyn Garden City Bridge Club’s first ever ‘Bridge Safari’ challenge.
Ninety-six people took part in the event, which took them to six different venues across WGC on Tuesdsay, April 17.
Jan Palmer Sayer, a retired headteacher and active member of the club, headed up a small committee who worked with local businesses across the town to pull off a unique event enjoyed by all.
Bridge players from all over the county and beyond, gathered at local pubs and eateries to play a total of 24 hands of duplicate bridge.
They then returned to the club room at the Gosling Sports Park to discover who had won the day.
A charity raffle, organized by club chairman Jeff Green, was also drawn.
Host venues on the day included, Brocket Hall, The Crooked Chimney, The Waggoners, The Red Lion, The Sun Inn & The Long Arm and Short Arm.
£4,100 was raised for Isabel Hospice in Welwyn Garden City.
