It comes with a heavy heart that we inform you that Brendon Veevers will be stepping down as President of BritBears on 31st May 2019.
Brendon released the following statement earlier today.
“It was a very tough decision: I created the club as a community organisation to help HIV and mental health charities and to help the gay community. Instead it turned into something that caused a great deal of unnecessary stress – I became a frequent target of online trolls, a target for venues and promoters who saw the club as ‘competition’ and many other factors that have led me to decide this action. The club has become something I no longer enjoy – swimming against the tide on a day-to-day basis and allowing it to consume me and cause me stress and heartache.
I’m proud of what I have achieved as founder and president of BritBears but the time has come for me to place my focus on other areas of my life.”
We would like to thank Brendon for all his hard work, commitment & dedication and wish him all the best in the future.
Please bear 🐻 (bare) with us whilst we work on the logistic of this change.
Robb, Peter & Mac
