EBED NEWS & OPPORTUNITIES

WELCOME TERRY HEWETT

As a recently appointed Trustee of English Bridge

Education & Development, Terry is taking over

from Bernard Eddleston as lead Trustee for Youth

and will chair the charity's Youth Advisory Group.

She is really looking forward to joining the strong

team and introducing more youngsters to the game

we love. Learning to play bridge at a young age can

kick off a lifelong interest in the game and can help

develop maths skills and critical thinking as well as

important social skills. For these reasons, Terry

describes her role in EBED as one of the most

exciting of all voluntary positions she has held.

Terry left a career in finance to raise a family and

decided to learn how to play bridge as a way of

keeping her brain active and meeting new people. She is now a full member of the English Bridge

Teachers Association, teaching the Bridge for All

programme and running supervised sessions. Her

great passion is teaching beginners and nurturing

their love for the game.

Terry started doing voluntary work during her

school days. More recently, she has been a school

governor, Chairman of Wimbledon Bridge Club,

and co-founder and Chairman of Night of the

Stars Charity Bridge Pro-Am which raised over

£250,000 for charity. Terry has served on the EBU's

Tournament Committee and continues to be a

member of the Tournament Panel. She set up and

runs a popular bridge session for the Wimbledon

Guild, a local charity which aims to reduce social

isolation and loneliness in the area.

A total of 26 youngsters went along to the second South-East

With teaching sessions in the morning and a tournament in the

afternoon, the day was executed by a magnificent team of

volunteers, led by June Middleton. Wimbledon Bridge Club

hosted the event which was part of Surrey's collaboration with

Kent and Sussex to improve bridge opportunities for

youngsters in the region.

Congratulations to the tournament winners, Woody and

Theo, pictured to the right.
