What Chess in Schools and Communities charity is doing regarding spreading and popularising chess across the UK is a great and amazing thing.

Since I joined CSC, over the years I have seen huge progress regards helping children to start to learn how to think in critical moments, as the simple chess game teaches.  You can see how, through chess games, children become more confident, make good choices, improve their concentration levels and most importantly have fun and make new friends.

For me it’s rewarding to be part of CSC, and be that person who goes to schools or libraries and makes that little spark of change in people through the simple game of chess.
