- On Sunday, Vivek, 4EP joined his family for a South Indian dosa charity brunch, hosted by his aunt. The family used this event to raise money for charity. Keen to do something to help raise money for the Noah’s Ark charity, Vivek put on a chess challenge, challenging willing guests to a game of chess. For every game he won, his opponent would donate a sum of their choice to the charity and for every game he lost, he donated a pound. Over a period of 3 hours Vivek played 8 games of chess with an array of unsuspecting adults, won every game and raised £47 for the charity. Great work Vivek!
