Glorney Gilbert International 2019

for Scottish Junior Chess Association Educational Trust

£450.00 + £100.00 Gift Aid = £550.00
Donated to Glorney Gilbert International 2019’s £3000.00 Goal

National youth squads of 20 junior players from England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, France and the Netherlands will compete in three days of intense international junior team chess at the Carrickdale Hotel & Spa (County Louth, Ireland) from 21 to 24 July.

In partnership with Chess Scotland, the trust is launching an appeal for funds to help defray the travel and accommodation costs of the Scottish juniors (estimated at around £6,000). For full details of the event see:

Originally conceived in 1948 as a boys' tournament for teams from the Home Countries, the Glorney internationals now regularly also include teams from France and the Netherlands. The 2019 event will comprise four separate tournaments: The Glorney Cup (Open) and Gilbert Cup (Girls), both for under-18s; The Robinson Cup (Open) for under-14s and the Stokes Cup (Open), for under-12s. 

The trust has a long record of supporting these events, which have offered many future adult internationalists their first opportunity to experience international competition. Many of these former participants have since supported the events as organisers, coaches or chaperones.

If you are a UK taxpayer, do please Gift-aid any donation in accordance with the instructions given when donating.

All funds raised will be applied to meet the 2019 event's budgetary costs, with any excess retained by the Trust in funds restricted to meet any future approved applications for support for Scottish junior international chess.

Thank you.

All funds raised will be passed to Scottish Junior Chess Association Educational Trust irrespective of whether our appeal target is reached, not reached or exceeded. If funds are being raised for a specific purpose and, for whatever reason, this purpose is no longer valid, the funds will be transferred to the charity for general use.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
