    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    My name is Jaden Jermy and I am 12 years old. I am looking to explore the possible part or full sponsorship opportunities through business's and/or funding/donations from individuals in order to reach my goal of playing at National and International level with the England Chess Team but also continue to develop to make my dream a career.

    I started playing chess 5 years ago and really enjoyed the calmness of the game. I currently play locally for one club in Thetford and two clubs in Bury St Edmunds. Over recent years myself and my mum travel up and down the country competing in National tournaments.

    I was recently invited to take part in a big London chess tournament after coming joint first in the under-11s category at a National tournament in Manchester - there were 45,000 applicants I got down to the last 200. At London I secured a norm (recognition of exceptional play ) in a 3-day chess tournament, 3 days, 3 games per day each game lasting 2-3 hours. I have just returned from a Closed England Competition, a trial for the England Squad. I am so please to announce I secured a place with the Junior England squad.

    If companies are willing to sponsor I can offer:
    Opportunities to be mentioned in local/national newspapers.
    Opportunities to have your company/ brand mentioned on television/ radio /social media.
    Advertisement on your company literature.

    I love Chess and if people are willing to support me I am happy to give back, always up for a game of Chess or helping teach those starting out. My recent TV and radio appearances has helped my confidence. I can't thank you enough for ANY contribution you make.

    I have copies of all the recent press and TV coverage as well as a summary of my chess achievements to date and a spreadsheet indicating the sponsorship I am hoping to secure taking the costs into account for the next 12 months.

    Thank you for your time in reading this and I hope you follow my story.

      Sunday I competed in Bury Under 18's Chess Congress. There were 23 entries in my category & I ranked 8th. If I am honest I didn't play my best, had some lucky wins/draws but have to admit the last two games I played strong. Ended up joint 3rd, 1 loss, 2 draws & 3 wins. What did I learn? Need to get my head in the game. When we travel I have time to prepare my mind, this local tournament I didn't feel prepared going into my first game. More chess needed lol
