Fundraising and donations have always played an important role in keeping membership costs down - small as we are, there are still a large number of costs involved in running the Group.
What do we need funds for?
Some of our costs relate to kit required to enable us to help badgers in need, such as trail cams and rescue equipment. Maintaining the Copse in Binfield brings responsibilities both to the badgers and our neighbours - and some of these come at a cost. Other funds are necessary for running a small charity, such as postage, insurance, hall hire, printing etc. And, out of our low membership fee, we pay approx £2.30 per member to the Badger Trust to whom we are affiliated.
If so, then you can support us, at no cost to yourself, through your day to day shopping! All you have to do is shop on AmazonSmile (www.smile.amazon.co.uk instead of www.amazon.co.uk) and select Binfield Badger Group as your chosen charity. Then BBG will receive 0.5% of the value of any purchases you make!
Every item available for purchase on www.amazon.co.uk is also available on AmazonSmile at the same price.
