Community Group Gets a Full House for its Annual Poker Tournament

July 25, 2014

Members of Chadwell Heath-based community group “Barking & Dagenham Plus” were feeling flushed with success last tuesday when they staged their Annual Poker Tournament at the White Horse Inn. So popular did it prove that card-sharps from all over Essex converged on the venue to test their Texas Hold’em skills.

The overall winner of the evening was Miss Gemma Crader, 23 (see picture).

Club-chairman Richard Leach said:

“Our Poker tournament is such a draw, that next year we are planning to up the ante and use it as a charitable fund-raising event.”

Barking & Dagenham Plus is a social group for young adults aged 18 and over, which helps out local causes as well as providing an enjoyable time for its members. It meets every Tuesday evening from 9pm at the White Horse, Chadwell Heath. For more information, including how to join, please phone Joe on 07958 669339, or visit
