Welcome to ECatsBridge
Children in Need 2023
So many of you joined in and made this a resounding success and we can't thank you enough for your support and generosity - not forgetting the heat organisers, the dealers and everyone who made it happen. Thus far we have had £59,463.25 pledged. We are not going to list the donations now as it really takes a lot of time to check and ensure there are no "double counting" errors, all too easily done. We will update you with the final total in due course ... it's usually about Christmas time when we send the final amount to the BBC as we are sure this total will rise over the next few weeks.
As you will see the results are now final and the files have been sent off to your Home Unions for them to allocate the master points - don't be impatient please - there's a lot involved, and they may not appear on your record for a while. But you can see from the file on the website how many you have been awarded - the file for each day is called Final Results and lists the points - just go to this page and you will see it for each day
Again - thank you all - you are truly amazing !
The Summer Charity Pairs
The Summer pairs and will raise funds for Kidney ResearchUK and British Heart Foundation. More information here - we rasied a total of £6,970.52 ... so that's £3,485.26 to each Charity. I must apologise for the delay in adding this to this page - I confess I completely forgot to post it here to let you know !
The u3a Spring Charity Bridge Festival
The Turkish/Syrian Earthquake
Thank you to all the clubs taking part in the event - I must apologise for the delay in adding the final total to this page - I confess I completely forgot to post it here to let you know ! But in the end we sent in the princly sum of £11.635.07 which I am sure is being put to good use.
ECatsBridge Charity Challenge
We are delighted to tell you that we - well you - raised £10,395.75 to be divided between the two charities this year - Mind and Macmillan Cancer Support and the bank transfer has been done - £5,197.89 to each of them. How lovely is that ! We are so grateful to all of you who supported the event so generously and I am sure the two charities will be equally pleased.
The Winter Charity Pairs for UNICEF
This event was held at the end of January - £4,413.65 has been sent off to UNICEF where I am quite sure it will be put to excellent use.
ECatsBridge for BBC Children in Need
The total sent to Children in Need was £60,678.43 ! Really thrilled with that and the generosity and support of all those who participated - the players of course but also the committee members who organise it (it wouldn't happen without you running the heats). Thank you all so so much. And thanks also to the EBU who waived their UMS fee and their licence fee for the master points.
