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.
"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."
"“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! ” "
"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."
