Our Club faced many challenges by the devastating earthquakes over the past four years, and many unexpected expenses.

The financial support of the Sumner Ferrymead Foundation was crucial to our survival as the Sumner Bridge Club. The Sumner Ferrymead Foundation has acted as a "force-multiplier" allowing us to continue our robust bridge programme, and at the same time allowing other Sumner organisations affected by the earthquakes, to share our facility. It has been a WIN-WIN for all Sumner community, and we thank you for your generous support.
