As the impact of Coronavirus starts to affect us all, we’ve put together some advice about how COVID-19 affects BMC Travel Insurance and our events. At the moment, we’re closely monitoring the situation, are following government advice and our events are going ahead as planned. However, this is a fast-moving situation and if we do postpone or cancel events then we’ll be in touch via email or text. Our Manchester office is open as normal, so do get in touch if any questions. 

Away from Coronavirus, but still on saving the world, the BMC is proud to launch The Climate Project - an ambititous plan to tackle the global climate crisis on your doorstep, through harnessing the full potential of moorland. Read more about The Climate Project here.
