2nd Bedford Boys' Brigade marks their 60th anniversary by giving back to local community
The 2nd Bedford Boys’ Brigade company is embarking on a number of fundraising projects in celebration of its forthcoming 60th anniversary in 2016.
The boys and girls, aged 5-18, are firmly focused on ‘giving back’ to the community and will be fundraising for a number of local charities.
Fundraising for local charities
Monies raised will support a number of charities in the community, which recently have included: The Bedford and District Cerebral Palsy Society, the Bedford Foodbank, Keech Cottage Hospice and a collection for the local Christmas shoebox appeal. More local charities are set to benefit from the fundraising campaign during 2015.
Improving inclusion to the Boys’ Brigade
Funds raised will also boost the Bedford company’s ‘needy fund’ which helps less well off members attend events such as outings, camps and training and also makes the group fully accessible to children with disabilities.
MyDonate is easy and intuitive to use
Allan Tresidder, captain of 2nd Bedford Boys’ Brigade, explains “With BT MyDonate we get more of the money we raise. I also like the website as it is easy and intuitive to use. BT has an ethos of supporting communities via BT MyDonate, and making sure charities are better supported has been a real blessing to this sector.”
