Strathaven Bridge Drive April 2017

enthusiastic players

The superbly well organised Bridge Drive, held in the Outreach Church, Townhead Street, Strathaven on Saturday 22nd April, was a huge success attracting 56 participants who took part in two hours of concentrated bridge playing. 

After a tasty lunch provided and served by the SFHHI committee and friends, and the two hour tournament, Iain Park gave a short talk about the work of HHI in India and Jute Williams gave thanks and praised the SFHHI folk for their amazing support, hard work, loyalty and professionalism.  Everyone had a wonderful time and the enthusiastic bridge players will certainly be back for more concentrated play next year.

Among the winners of the Bridge Drive were Iain Park and Kath Russell, both members of the SFHHI committee!!  But that’s not all… a beautiful cake, especially made for the event and donated by Taylor’s Bakery, Strathaven, was the prize for the winning admission ticket and, in addition to this, there were no less than 40 raffle prizes!

It’s little wonder that the grand total for the event exceeded £900!!!
