The Appleby Frodingham Sports and Social Club ('AFSSC') in Scunthorpe presents the Kendal Award each year, to individuals who are making a big difference in their local community.
This year the award has been won by Jo Hutchinson. Jo's contribution in this particular case is, of course, in the world of chess, where she runs the junior club, visit schools, plays in the local leagues, captains a team and is unfailingly supportive and always highly positive in her outlook.
Jo - who said 'I am delighted and honoured to have received this award' is no stranger to chess on Teesside or this blog either, having spent a significant amount of time on Teesside this year and also been present during all three of my 2019 expeditions to Hull.
