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.”
To book a ticket, please see www.stpeter-stjames.org.uk/event/st-georges-day or call 01444 470722. Tickets cost £35 per head of £300 for a table of 10.
"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. "
"As the local hospice for the area, it’s great that we receive so much support from the BHBPA. Last year the members raised an amazing £2150 through activities such as Bake Off and the BHBiz Awards. Each well planned members meeting enables good networking opportunities and speakers that are relevant to the present climate and local issues. We are proud to be members of BHBPA."
"“I have belonged to this group since I started my own business, Lea Graham Associates, in 1986. The association has been through several incarnations since then, but its most recent one, BHBPA, is by far the best.
It’s much more than just a networking group, although it is supremely good at that too. BHBPA is inclusive and friendly and acts like a mutual-support society. The events are stimulating, worthwhile and often great fun and I believe most members share this opinion.”"
"“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! ” "
