Brierfield Bridge Club has raised £1,550 for Pendleside Hospice through a charity bridge drive.
The event at the club’s Clitheroe Road home included afternoon tea and cake made by members who clubbed together, a bric a brac stall and a raffle, which all helped to reach the total for the charity which is close to members hearts.
Brierfield Bridge Club was founded in 1981 and has grown to be one of the biggest club’s in Lancashire with more than 300 members from beginners to county standard players.
The club owns its own premises which have been converted from an old pub and has comfortable accommodation for up to 24 tables as well as teaching, catering, computer and library facilities.
Bridge sessions are available every week day and regular weekend social events are held throughout the year. The club is very keen to encourage beginners to take up the game and offer lessons each year to people without any prior knowledge of the game.
It is a good way to make new friends in a friendly environment.
