Marshals needed for Star Walk (Breakfast Included!) on Saturday 9th July, Haywards Heath for St Peter & St James Hospice
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01444 470 722

"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. "
"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."
"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"
"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."
