Celebrate St George’s Day and support your local hospice
St Peter & St James Hospice is inviting everyone to celebrate St George’s Day with a Gala Lunch and auction at Pelham House Hotel.
On Friday 22 April, the Hospice and Pelham House Hotel, in Lewes, will be jointly hosting the event, involving a 3-course meal and auction. The day is the perfect occasion to celebrate English culture with traditional and locally-sourced food while raising funds for St Peter & St James Hospice.
All the Hospice services are free of charge to patients and loved ones and St Peter & St James relies on its local community for 86% of its funds, as just 14% comes from the Government. St Peter & St James cares for patients from Burgess Hill, Haywards Heath, Lewes, Uckfield and surrounding villages. With a population of 200,000, if every person in the catchment area gave just £1 a month this would nearly cover the running costs.
Carolyn Robinson, Donor Relationship Manager at St Peter & St James Hospice, said, “We’re very grateful to Pelham House Hotel for facilitating this lunch and look forward to welcoming our guests to a very special event to help raise much needed funds for the hospice”
General Manager at Pelham House Hotel, Tony Giauna, said, “It’s fantastic to host an event and be able to support a local charity offering such an important service to the community. We hope we can make this an annual event that businesses will support.”

"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. "
""BHBPA is a really well organised and run group, great for networking and benefitting from knowledgeable local speakers with real business insight. Peter brings enthusiasm and humour which helps drive the association forward. I am glad to be part of it.""
"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. "
"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."
