Members of the BC Club have raised over £352,000 for charities and individuals across Dorset & Hampshire.
The members of the BC Club have donated just over £352,000 to individuals and charities in Dorset and Hampshire since 2008.
The BC Club started as a group of lads getting together to have a good time, whilst also doing something positive to help those less fortunate.
We are a group of like-minded, generous and above all, friendly businessmen who all have one common goal: combining a good day out and having fun, with the money raised being given to deserving charities or individuals in Dorset and Hampshire that genuinely require the help of others.
The latest get-together of the BC Club saw a cheque for £6000 presented to Frances Cornelius, Chair and Secretary of Variety Wessex, the children’s charity that provides mobility aids, Sunshine Coaches and fun events and days out for children and young people in the Wessex region. The money raised by generous BC members will go towards funding various events such as a belated Easter Party, a trip to Chessington World of Adventures for underprivileged young carers and a trip to Monkey World for 200 children and 40 adults. We’re sure that all involved will have a wonderful time!
We are happy to announce our fundraising evening at AFC Bournemouth’s Vitality Stadium raised an astonishing £53,000. Over 200 people attended, including wives and partners of members, all enjoying a fine meal, games and an auction. We were incredibly lucky to have been given some very generous prizes and auction items from both members of the club and local businesses donated so every penny made on the night will be distributed to local charities.
Since 2008, the BC Club has been donating much needed funds to charities and individuals across Dorset & Hampshire. Some of the charities we’ve helped include Poole Hospital, the Sparkle Appeal, Gully’s Place Trust Fund, Dreamflight, Cancer Research, Youth Cancer Trust & Round Table Childrens Wish. We also help individuals, particularly children and young people, faced with life limiting illnesses and disabilities.
Jakob is three years old and has Cerebral Palsy. He has been accepted for a life changing SDR operation that will get him out of his wheelchair and enable him to walk. Sadly, the NHS do not fund this operation and it costs a massive £65,000. When we heard about this, our members kindly donated £10,000 to the appeal and wish Jakob and his family the very best.
