Planet BB

PLANET BB: The Boys’ Brigade around the world

Planet BB has been published to raise money for BB Companies mainly in Africa who are desperate for financial support. It is the brain-child of Sutton Coldfield BB officer, David Chant.

Boys and officers of the 2nd Sutton Coldfield Company based at St John’s in Walmley have worked on the project for 2 years. Even before publication, £2000 had been raised for an orphanage in Uganda, run by a BB officer. Now about £5000 has been sent to the orphanage, and to Global Fellowship.
