A single grant is currently available for any member who would like to attend the October Sorefingers weekend – applications should be made through the Sponsorship Page. The BBMA recognises the fact that education does not stop at an early age, and it is our hope that we will be able to support some more mature students who might otherwise struggle to find the funding.
