BVNA names charity of the yearBVNA names charity of the year

The Daphne Shipman Benevolent Fund has been named as BVNA’s charity of the year. The fund was created to support BVNA members, their spouses, relations or dependents in times of need. It was set up in memory of Daphne Shipman, who was the BVNA Congress chief steward for a number of years, but sadly lost her fight against cancer in 1999. Team BVNA will be climbing the O2 to raise funds and awareness. A JustGiving page has been set up: justgiving.com/daphneshipman-benevolentfund
