News: Thanks from the Hospice

Posted on 31st May 2017

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.


Best wishes,

"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! ” "

"Since joining BHBPA we have found it to be a dynamic and vibrant members’ organisation, with excellent, regular and informative meetings.

Peter Liddell does a first class job in ensuring that members’ interests are aired and addressed.
