Donations - Why and Where it all Goes..
BBTA has for the last Three Years been Privately Funded. A vast of money has been spent on Media Development, Attending Events, Equipment, Corporate Discount Schemes, Recovery of Stolen Bikes and Campaigning to improve the situation with Thefts. It is at a point of gaining help with funding to move forward and realise more targets which we just cannot complete alone. All donations are recorded, accounted for and traceable in line with our Code.
Over 3 years or more now, we have achieved some great things. We have been here as the Voice of the Motorcycle Community, and the Communities blighted by the Anti Social Behaviour associated with the Motorcycle Crime. We are still enjoying a reduction in theft, much of it down to the good work of the Community being the eyes and ears, and us getting that information where it should be. We are all a team.
Now we have come to the point where the Pocket just isn't deep enough to continue without your help. We have never made any commision, income or profit on any products we have promoted - all the savings were directly passed onto you direct from suppliers. We never dealt with Cash.
We currently have an expanding Recovery Team and much work to do which all need help with fuel, as they are funding out of their own pockets and small donations from owners. They are out Tirelessly every night tracking, and recovering bikes and reuniting with owners., using their own vehicles and fuel with no return. It would be great to offer them some renumeration for fuel and wear on their vehicles.
We would also like to Progress with what we are doing and achieving, which all costs money and although I am happy to still fund as much as I can, it needs to be less of a load.
So Please, if you like what we do - feel free to come and share some of the load, and please Donate whatever you can afford to ensure we can continue to provide you with the service and discounts we have over the last three years.
