As with all charitable organisations nowadays, we need to ensure we have enough funds available to provide all our children with the appropriate materials and equipment to provide a safe and healthy environment for the Company. We therefore need to organise regular fundraising activities to generate income for the Company. We do have our regular bills to pay such as hall rental, insurance and matriculation costs so we need to manage our finances carefully.
We do charge each of our boys an annual £20 enrolment fee for the whole year which is set by National BB HQ. In addition, we ask each of our boys to pay a weekly fee of £2 to ensure we can provide refreshments, materials and everyday items for all our activities. We still believe this offers excellent value for money. Any additional trips, e.g. yearly trip to Abernethy for Junior Section boys is paid for by parents.
We are intending to set up for the first time a dedicated “Friends of the BB” Committee to support our fundraising, marketing and sponsorship activities. We are looking for people from the Forres Community and indeed parents and friends to join this group to assist with our efforts to generate income and funds for the Company. You do not need to be involved with the BB. If you would like to help with our fundraising, please contact the Company Captain directly. All help and ideas are warmly welcomed.
