As outlined in the initial BYCB invitation letter, please be assured any who may foresee difficulties with the tour cost, confidential financial assistance is available on request in cases of hardship. Where there are 2 or more members of the same family in BYCB and/or BYCO, the siblings only contribute 75% of the total cost each.
As with all tours fundraising can make a great contribution and enhances the experience by paying for extra activities and excursions; some years the fundraising has been so successful that we have been able to reduce the initial cost. I would like to say a big thank you to present parents in BYCB who have contributed so much in this area and invite you to join them in helping to make a significant contribution both financially and socially to BYCB 2017-18.
