Scottish Junior Chess Association Educational Trust - Closing Down - October 2021

As of 27 October 2021 the trust has been wound up/dissolved, with the approval of the Scottish Charities Regulator (OSCR).

The trust's remaining assets (circa £4,900) have been transferred to Chess Scotland, who have agreed to use these monies to help fund future costs of the Glorney Gilbert International Junior Chess matches when next hosted in Scotland. The trust has provided grants for this purpose for many years (most recently for the Glorney Gilbert events held in Paisley in 2018).

We thank all of those who have donated to the trust since its inception in 1969. Your donations have contributed greatly to the promotion of the trust's junior chess educational purposes over the years. In turn support from the Trust has been much appreciated by junior chess club organisers in schools and in the community, as well as the individual junior players who have benefitted, and their parents.
