BVNA are delighted to have chosen the Daphne Shipman Benevolent Fund as this year's charity of the year

BVNA President, Sam Morgan, was delighted to announce the association’s nominated charity of the year for 2016/2017

"BVNA feels its important to give something back to its members at their time of need and so by nominating the Daphne Shipman Benevolent Fund we hope to raise awareness of the charity and vital funds to ensure that the charity can continue supporting those individuals facing hardship and difficult times for many years to come"

The charity was founded in memory of Daphne Shipman who was the chief steward for BVNA during Congress over many years.  Daphne was loved by all who knew her and she sadly lost her fight against cancer in June 1999.

The fund has been made available to BVNA members with the objective of supporting members, their spouses, relations or dependents who are in need, hardship or distress.
