DRIVE FOR FUN IN 21

For the year ahead, all BDS Members are welcome to join our challenge to cover 100, 200 or 300 + miles during their drives from home, yard or at a BDS organised drive.  All participants will receive a Bronze, Silver or Gold Rosette depending on the miles logged and once completed, each name will be entered into a prize draw.

There will also be an award for the most miles covered and we welcome your photos and updates throughout the season to feature on our website and social media pages.  There will be a final photo competition for all entrants in October for another great prize kindly sponsored by ‘Carriagelink’.  This challenge is free to enter but you must register to take part and be a current BDS member.  Once registered, you will receive your loggin sheets to keep a record of your mileage when you drive out either at home or on an organised drive.  There are lots of free apps to use to keep track of your progress.

The challenge starts on 1st March and runs to 31st October 2021.  All mileage totalled by then will qualify the entrant to a rosette and a chance to win £100 in our prize draw.  There will be a special prize for the most miles covered and all entrants will have the chance to feature in a final photo competition to win a £50 voucher kindly donated by ‘Take The Reins’.

Please email: antoniagallop@icloud.com to register and dont forget to include your address and membership number.

If you are waiting for a reply to your query or your membership card to arrive, please bear with us. The office is very busy at the moment and we aren’t able to bring extra staff in due to the restrictions so things are taking a little longer than usual. Thank you and keep safe.
