The BPA Fund has a survey that I’d really appreciate you filling in if you have a few moments. You can find it here:

For some extra incentive if you fill it in you can be entered into a draw for a £50 Amazon voucher. For the purposes of this survey “Getting Better Acquainted” counts as "Down to a sunless sea" whether you are listening to it via the GBA feed or not.
