Sweatshirt Sale

As a result of an ordering error, the Essex Junior Chess Association has a surfeit of adult-sized "Essex Chess" sweatshirts, in small, medium and large. These are all top-quality sweatshirts, mostly "Fruit of the Loom", which normally retail at £18 or more.

We can supply these at £15 (+£1.50 postage and packing). To order, send a cheque for £16.50 made payable to Southend Junior Chess and addressed to "Sweatshirt order, c/o 62 East Street, Southend, SS2 6LH", stating size. Almost all the sweatshirts are in red, although we have one or two pale blue ones. All profits go to support junior chess in Essex.
