Chess in Schools and Communities
Shreyas Royal is the best English chess prodigy in a generation. There was just one slight problem, he was due to be deported.
Brazil’s pro-bono work highlighted Shreyas’ potential through a targeted national media and broadcast campaign. Seen throughout the world, this put pressure on the Home Office, which overruled its decision to send Shreyas’ family back to India.
Shreyas and family are now free to remain in the UK, and English chess can hopefully celebrate a new champion.
