Are you a good chess player?

Befriending / Visiting volunteers needed for Her Majesty’s Prison Huntercombe in RG9

We are looking for good standard chess players to help with our Thursday evening chess club in HMP Huntercombe.

We have a range of players in the prison, ranging from the very strong to beginner, and would like people to come and play chess against them.

This will happen in a supervised environment that is led by the prison chaplaincy
