We only look a little wet! It’s a good job we did not wait until after the tournament to take the photos!
As I have said many times, the hospice is incredibly grateful to BHBPA for all its support of the hospice. The BHBiz Awards was such a fun event and to have raised £2,500 was phenomenal amount of money. We included all the sponsorship money that I think Estie is sorting out?
We often get asked how the money is spent and I thought you might find it useful to see some of the costs that could be covered with the donation.
£600 could train a team of ten new hospice volunteers
£384 could pay for a Healthcare Assistant for a week
£318 could pay to clean the hospice for a week
£112 could pay for a home visit by our palliative consultant
£60 could pay for four complementary therapy sessions in the Beacon View Wellbeing Centre
£27 could pay for one hour of counselling
£23 could pay for one hour of support in a patient’s own home
£19 could pay for one hour of care from a hospice nurse
£10 could help provide a bath for a patient
I hope the event on Tuesday at Q Leisure went well.
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "
