The BBC Club was founded in 1924 as a private member’s club. It has been a part of BBC Life for over 80 years. Today the Club is the heart of social unity within the BBC.
In their own words:
“All BBC and its’ partners staff can enjoy a wealth of services from the pursuit of a lifelong interest; as a place to meet friends or to work up the next big idea. Members benefit from discounted rates in all our Clubs and services, a plethora of additional online benefits and high street deals, a private lottery and exclusive member only events. The Club’s virtual community spreads far beyond the physical premises with benefits and services accessible to all.”
The Club recently held their Easter Pop Up Shop at their Media City UK Headquarters at Salford Quays where Bleakholt Animal Sanctuary was one of the few organisations to be invited to participate to promote their work and we were privileged to share a stand with the BBC Club itself.
Bob Carter, Head of Fundraising at Bleakholt is seen here presenting a ‘Certificate of Appreciation’ to Elizabeth Dignam of the BBC Club for the BBC Club’s wonderful support.
