Past Funded Projects

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, the trust has previously been able to fund a number of hugely beneficial projects and hopes to be able to continue to do so. These have included the Multi-Use Games Area, new boats for BCBC, Lighting and PA systems for Butler Bar, framing and canvas printing of student artwork, supporting charity expeditions, purchasing of new sporting equipment. Read about the difference some of these projects have made to our student here.
