World U20 Chess Championships

As many of you know I am a keen chess player and have been for a considerable number of years now, yet it came as a suprise when an opportunity arose to play in the official World U20 Chess Championships in New Delhi in October later this year. I have been invited to high level European events before, being unable to go due to exams, but this year is my last chance before I turn 20 to play this once in a lifetime competition on a global level. I am an ex junior international player and have represented England on multiple occasions as well as playing in tournaments throughout Europe. Furthermore, I represent Lancaster University A team and my home team Penrith where my love for chess emerged.    

This is a costly event but it is a final opportunity to play an incredible tournament. Therefore I am aiming to fundraise for the competition to pay for some of the expense. Whilst there is no obligation to donate anything (please do not feel pressurized in any way), any support would be hugely appreciated. Even a small donation can go a long way...
