News: Dance for St Peter & St James Hospice

Posted on 6th January 2016

Join the fantastic Dance-A-Thon in aid of your local Hospice – you too could dance like Katie Derham!

On Saturday 23 January, St Peter & St James Hospice is holding its first ever 12-hour Dance-A-Thon kick-starting 2016 with a fun-filled day of dance for all ages. As seen on BBC Strictly Come Dancing, the Hospice’s Patron, Katie Derham, had a great time learning new steps. The event is in aid of the Hospice and everyone is invited to join by registering online.

The Dance-A-Thon will start at 10am and run through until 10pm at Clair Hall, in Haywards Heath, finishing with a ‘Swoove Ignite’ party with Esther Featherstone, from 6pm. As well as having fun and getting fit, there will be the chance to try Zumba, Bollywood, Salsa, Swoove and other classes being run by fantastic dance instructors. The classes last for an hour, so people can come for a couple of hours or join in for the whole day – joining as a team of five means that people can take part in the 12-hour challenge in shifts.

Eleanor Gloster, Events and Community Manager at St Peter & St James Hospice, said, “We’re delighted to be hosting a charity Dance-A-Thon, following in the ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ footsteps of our Patron, Katie Derham. This is a great chance for everyone to have fun and dance their way to raising money for their local Hospice”

Testimonials

"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 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. "

Steve Cridland, CEO
(Burgess Hill Town Council)

"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."

The Hon Nicholas Soames MP

"“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”"
