Story

Thank you to everybody who sponsored me as one of 20 people playing against former World Champion, Boris Spassky.  I lasted for 23 moves before succumbing to defeat but at least we have raised a substantial amount of money for Childline in the process

I am still hopeful of raising £1,000 so if you have not sponsored me already please consider doing so..

Thanks for your support.

Peter
