Share this article

Contestants of all ages from Hailsham played through a knock out style chess tournament and culminated in a tense final. The eventual winner was 16-year-old Will Hook who received a prize from Chapter 12 by Simon Cosham from St Wilfrids.

The £5 per person entry fee was donated directly to St Wilfrids.

Chapter 12 and St Wilfrids are now planning a series of similar events based on the success of this evening and will include other games such as draughts, scrabble and connect 4.
