DRESS AS AN ELF ON THE 12TH EVENT
The Disabilities Trust is hosting a ‘Dress as an elf’ event on Saturday 12th December at 12pm in Market Place Shopping Centre to raise money for the #ConnectAbility Appeal.
Come along and join the festive fun – from 10am the #ConnectAbility elves will help you look the part with face paint, elf ears and elf hats ready for a group elf picture at 12pm outside Costa.
All funds raised will go towards the #ConnectAbility to purchase life-changing assistive technology to help disabled people communicate. If you require more information please contact Emma Millar email@example.com. It would be great if local stores could get involved in this too!

Burgess Hill Town Centre Partnership Operational Town Team
"Regular, well organised events, excellent updates and information by email along with a warm welcome from the Chair and Coordinator are just some of the positives at BHBPA."
"As the local hospice for the area, it’s great that we receive so much support from the BHBPA. Last year the members raised an amazing £2150 through activities such as Bake Off and the BHBiz Awards. Each well planned members meeting enables good networking opportunities and speakers that are relevant to the present climate and local issues. We are proud to be members of BHBPA."
"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."
"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."
