BRC VOLUNTER LEAGUE
This is a completely free to enter league to really recognise all the hard work and dedication of our volunteers at Club, Area and Championship competitions. With a chance to win some fantastic prizes and rosettes at the end of the year. It is really simple to get involved and volunteers don’t have to be BRC members but they do need to be registered in the Volunteers club. Then they simply just need to submit what hours they have done volunteering each month.
