Membership of the UK’s largest shooting organisation has hit a record 155,000.
BASC chairman Peter Glenser QC thanked those who continue to remain members of BASC and welcomed the newest members of the association. He said reaching the milestone was one everyone at BASC should be rightly proud of.
He said: “We are delighted that the BASC family continues to grow. Welcome to the newest members of our family.
“Reaching 155,000 memberships is another significant step forward for BASC and one we are very proud of.
“The fact that BASC keeps on growing is testament to the hard work, dedication and passion of all of our staff, volunteers and other supporters.
“All of our members, whether they be new or longstanding, can rest assured that the best interests of shooting sports are at the very heart of everything we do.”
BASC chief executive Ian Bell said: “I would like to extend a very warm welcome to all of our new members and promise them and our existing members that their decision to join BASC means they will help us promote and protect shooting sports.
“BASC is the voice of shooting; each and every new member who joins us adds weight to that voice.”
BASC is the UK’s largest shooting organisation supporting all shooting interests and disciplines as well as highlighting the importance of high standards of behaviour and game as food and the important role that the sport plays in enhancing conservation and biodiversity.
