Your BIGGA membership can help you through the toughest times.
Times are hard at the moment, there’s no getting away from it. The economy is tough and redundancies are on the rise, with work seemingly hard to find. For BIGGA members, the Greenkeepers Benevolent Fund is here to help and grants are available for any member who encounters hardship or an unexpected bill.
Do you find yourself reaching for your credit card more often? Have you emptied your savings? The Greenkeepers Benevolent Fund can help you.
The fund can be used for help with: back to school equipment and clothing; unexpected repairs around the home; maintenance of your car and vehicles; laptops and personal computers for your children’s schoolwork; family shopping; regular transport costs to work; babysitting and childcare costs.
The list goes on, but if you have a genuine need for support, the Greenkeepers Benevolent fund is here to provide relief for past and present members of BIGGA and their dependents.
What is the BIGGA Greenkeepers Benevolent Fund?
The Greenkeepers Benevolent Fund is the official charity of BIGGA, officially registered on Thursday 22nd January 2015. The fund exists to assist current or past members and their dependants, to provide financial support and practical help during difficult times.
