Having existed as The Anglo-Spanish Society since 1958, we have recently adopted a new name, the BritishSpanish Society, which reflects the ways in which the Society has developed since its founding and more accurately represents our central mission. Our new logo and website design are part of our general re-brand and reflects this change in our identity.
As our Chairman, Jimmy Burns Marañón explains in the latest issue of La Revista:
“This re-brand, which follows a wide consultation, forms part of a reshaping of our organisation to cater for the interests of a growing membership, and deliver improved services to corporate and institutional partners, in line with our central mission and core values.
We are in good shape thanks to my predecessor Denise Holt whose three years at the helm as chairman has been an example of sensible and inspirational management, presiding over a period of growth and innovation and laying firm foundations for the future as we approach in 2016 the centenary of our Society’s foundation.
We remain dedicated to the task of helping foster positive cultural and social links between the people of Spain and the UK through a varied programme of events. And in the current climate, when many young people are finding it hard to pursue their studies or find jobs, let alone develop the skills that might help bring them fresh opportunities, we are deeply committed to helping where we can. It is a source of some pride that we can showcase our scholarship programme as an example of the positive outcome of our fund raising activities as a charity. It is also an opportunity to honour the talent of Spanish and British post-graduate students who with their research and work are contributing to a better future for themselves and their co-citizens.”
