The council of the UK’s largest shooting organisation has decided to recognise the contribution made by the armed forces by introducing a subscription discount for all serving members, including reservists.
The British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC) now offers members who are in any branch of the armed forces a £10 discount on their individual full membership subs.
Philippa Bursey, BASC’s director of business management, said: “As a national organisation we wanted to show that we recognise and appreciate what our armed forces do for our country.”
BASC has also recently introduced a phased direct debit scheme to make it even easier and more cost effective for people to join BASC. Membership subs have been kept at last year’s prices and discounts for Young Shots, OAPs and people on Jobseekers’ Allowance remain in place.
For more information and to join or renew membership, phone 01244 573030. Applicants will need to be able to provide evidence that they are currently serving in the armed forces.
