Purling London was invited to the prestigious London Chess Classic Closing Dinner, which was hosted by the iconic Savoy Hotel on the Strand. We donated some Purling products for the auction, which was in aid of Chess in Schools and Communities. CSC provide chess coaching, lessons and events including in inner city schools and prisons.

We also displayed a hand-illustrated Purling Art Chess set by artist, Leonardo Frigo.

It was a great pleasure to be at the Savoy, to meet with many important people from the international chess community and to support the CSC charity, which makes such a positive impact on many lives.
