Please support your local hospice on 4 and 5 December – it’s The Big Give Christmas Challenge!
The Big Give Christmas Challenge is coming and with it the possibility of raising the fantastic sum of £40,000 for St Peter & St James Hospice through online donations on 4 and 5 December.
From midday on 4 and 5 December, the Hospice is asking supporters to donate to the Christmas Challenge online at www.stpeter-stjames.org.uk to help raise the funds to pay for a whole month of hospice inpatient care, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Donations will be matched from a pot of £20,000 pledged funds that have been created by hospice supporters and our Charity Champion for the Challenge, Candis Magazine. Each online donation unlocks an equal amount from our pledged funds and so doubles the value of the original donation. However, online donations are only matched until the pledged funds have been exhausted on each day, making the Challenge a race against the clock. The earlier a donation is made, the better the chance it will be matched.
Carolyn Robinson, Donor Relationship Manager at St Peter & St James Hospice, said, “We’re so grateful to our supporters and to Candis Magazine for pledging their support to help us reach the final phase of the Big Give Christmas Challenge. We are hoping that our loyal and generous supporters, who have helped make the Challenge such a success for the hospice for the last three years, will roll up their sleeves to go online and donate once again so that we can make the most of this fantastic opportunity to raise £40,000 for our inpatient care.”
Flic Everett, Editor at ‘Candis’ Magazine, said, “We are delighted to be helping to raise money for such an important cause, and hope the charity will go from strength to strength in the coming year.”
If you would like to help, please visit www.stpeter-stjames.org.uk and click on the Big Give logo at midday on 4 or 5 December to make a donation. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
"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."
""BHBPA is a really well organised and run group, great for networking and benefitting from knowledgeable local speakers with real business insight. Peter brings enthusiasm and humour which helps drive the association forward. I am glad to be part of it.""
"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"
"“We have been members of BHBPA from its inception, and seen the organisation steadily grow and expand into the dynamic entity it is today, bringing positive benefits to all its members.""
