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”
"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.
"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. "
"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. "
"“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”"
