BASC announces centenary patrons.
Thursday, 30 August 2007
The British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC) has announced its list of Centenary Patrons.
Centenary patrons are people who have played a significant part in BASC's achievements and in some cases continue to do so, as well as those who are well known and will, through their patronage, promote shooting to a wider audience.
English cricket legends Sir Ian Botham and David Gower and former England rugby captain Lawrence Dallaglio MBE are among the patrons from the sporting world.
Other patrons include Clarissa Dickson-Wright, Sir Johnny Scott, Bernard Cribbins, Martin Salter MP, Jim Paice MP and John Thurso MP.
Director of Operations, Simon Hamlyn, said: "I am delighted that such an esteemed group of individuals have agreed to be our centenary patrons. They will play an important role in helping us promote BASC and shooting to the widest possible audience throughout our centenary year in 2008."
A full list of patrons as well as quotes and pictures of most of the patrons are available from the BASC press office on 01244 573031
