News: Time 4 Children Report

Posted on 21st January 2016

Time 4 Children is needed more than ever!

Our service is free and easy to access. Because we support children in their school setting, we know that children’s services in West Sussex are facing a funding crisis, which means that Time 4 Children is being used more than ever before. However, we are totally reliant on donations, grants and sponsorships to keep going.

We now support more than 50 local children a year and there are many more children needing our support. If we are to continue providing our vital service after our Big Lottery grant ends in June 2016, we need your help!

How you can help us

  • Organise a fund raising event or a group fundraising challenge, big or small….every penny counts! Use Bt MyDonate or Local Giving to set up a fund raising page in aid of our work.
  • You could sponsor one of our events or challenges! Take a look at our Facebook page – time4childrencharity.
  • If you are a school, you could have a cake stall, a sponsored non-school uniform day, a sponsored hour’s sing along or a sponsored silent play time!
  • Organise a fundraising Summer party!

If you need help, to help us, please contact Gail at gailtime4children@gmail.com

Or ….. Donations can be made through Bt MyDonate and Local Giving websites. We will have a new web site soon, which will have a donation button linking into Bt MyDonate and Local Giving. Thank you.

"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

"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."

Steve Mooney

"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."
