Message from Our President

Dear Members and Friends of the BBS,

I am Kelly Ducourty and have been living in the Bay Area for 5.5 years with my 2 children, and volunteering with the BBS for 3 of those. I have found the BBS to be a wonderful organization who not only provides assistance to Brits who find themselves in need throughout the Western United States but also a great place for community building! On top of this we do love to have some fun. So please tell your friends as we want to make this year our best yet both for fund raising and generally getting out and about as part of the social network.

Enjoy the summer and stay well.
