What our beneficiaries say

“I would like to take this opportunity to offer a heartfelt thank you to all the trustees at the BBF. I was unable to secure funding for a degree course through the traditional route. The BBF really was my last hope in obtaining the funding I so desperately needed. They agreed to fund me a personal loan for the entire course!! Now is the perfect time for me to participate in this 2-year part time degree and it wouldn't have been possible had it not been for the help and generous support of the trustees. Thank you so much.”

"I am writing on behalf of myself and my family to say a big THANK YOU to the whole team administering the BBF and your kind continued generosity. We are and always will be, extremely grateful for all the support you have given us over the last three years. It has meant a great deal to us and helped us enormously to come to terms with my re-diagnosis and the implications this had on my health, career and therefore upon the family as a whole."


"We want to give you an update. Things are going well. This is the first year we can stand on our own regarding all bills etc. The business is going great guns!! All equipment that you helped us with is being used. Thank you all."

"Wow!! A grant!! That act of generosity has really helped my situation. I was looking at potentially selling my house to try and make ends meet. Now I can just focus on getting better and re-gaining my medical as soon as possible. Please pass on my sincere gratitude to the trustees."
