Posted on 24th May 2016

Marshals needed for Star Walk  (Breakfast Included!) on Saturday 9th July, Haywards Heath for St Peter & St James Hospice

www.stpeter-stjames.org.uk/event/star-walk-2016

 

Can you spare a few hours to help marshal at St Peter & St James Hospice’s Star Walk around Haywards Heath?

The marshals play a vital roles – ensuring that walkers along the 10km route know where they are going and feel supported.

The event is the biggest fundraiser for our local Hospice and raises around £35,000 – but it can only happen with support!

 

Marshals need to be:

–          Available between 9.30pm – 1am on Saturday 9th July (yes we know it’s a little late / early – but it’s for a good cause)

–          18 years or older & have a mobile phone

–          Able to get to the Dolphin Leisure Centre in Haywards Heath and ideally have their own car (useful but not essential)

–          All marshals will work in pairs – so ideally volunteer with a friend – or we can match you with someone in advance.

 

Every marshal receives breakfast & coffee and a Star Walk 2016 memento – plus you’ll be part of an amazing event and helping us raise money to look after local people and families that the Hospice is a lifeline for in very difficult times.

 

If you can help – please contact the Hospice Star Walk Team on starwalk@stpeter-stjames.org.uk  or call 01444 470 722

 

Many thanks

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! ” "

"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."
