The  British  Benevolent  Association  for  the  Province  of  Girona  (BBA)  was  set  up  as  a  registered   charity  in  2007  with  the  aim  of  providing  practical  help  and  support  to  any  British  or  Commonwealth   subject  living  in,  staying  in  or  passing  through  the  province  of  Girona  and  its  Costa  Brava.  The  practical  help  is  provided  through  a  network  of  volunteers  across  the  region  and  supported  by   donations  and  fundraising  events.    Whilst  the  British  Consular  Service  is  there  to  provide  formal  and  emergency  support  to  its  nationals   abroad,  the  BBA  can  provide  longer  term  and  informal  assistance,  which  can  include  everything  from   home  visits  to  the  elderly,  to  practical  help  with  local  agencies,  shopping  or  even  dog  walking  where   the  owner  is  temporarily  incapacitated.

The  BBA  Governing  Committee  meets  regularly  to  manage  membership,  requests  for  help,  volunteer   co-­‐ordination  and  fundraising  events.  Many  BBA  members  have  the  option  to  become  volunteers   supporting  clients  in  their  local  area  if  required.    If  you  wish  to  know  more  about  the  role  of  the   volunteer  please  contact  us  and  we  will  be  happy  to  answer  your  questions.      The  BBA  is  very  keen  to  recruit  new  members,  both  potential  volunteers  and  others  that  contribute   through  more  passive  support.  If  you  would  like  to  become  a  member  do  please  visit  our  ‘Join  Us’   page  on  this  site.    All  members  receive  regular  updates  on  BBA  activities  both  by  email  and  through   this  website  so  you  can  keep  up-­‐to-­‐date  with  what  we  are  up  to.
