CSC Launch Chess at Home

Post by Chris Fegan » Sun Apr 19, 2020 6:47 am

I am delighted to announce that CSC has now formally launched its #chessathome offering for schools, children and parents following the Easter break.

This offering is designed to support schools, children and parents during the Covid-19 lockdown and the ambition is to teach chess to 1 million children. The centrepiece of the offering will be 1 million FREE Gold ChessKid accounts, valid to July 20, 2020

I would stress that this offer is not limited to CSC schools but is available to all UK primary schools, individual parents, libraries and chess clubs.

Further details can be found on the CSC Website using the following link

I welcome this excellent initiative and I have made a donation in support of it. If anyone else would like to do so, the link is https://www.chessinschools.co.uk/donate ... redit-card.

For the avoidance of doubt, the content of this post and the responsibility for it are mine alone. No-one in CSC had any prior knowledge of it.

Well done Chris for setting it up. I'll pass on the info to the parents of the Juniors at our chess clubs. The children are missing their chess fix.
