Update from Market Place Shopping Centre

Footfall for the month of June 2016 was UP Month on Month and Year on Year, this is great news!

We are pleased to announce that shoppers at Market Place raised £5,169 for the Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance in a raffle to win a brand new convertible Mini Cooper.  Staff and volunteers for the life-saving charity sold tickets for the draw at Market Place Shopping Centre last month (May 23rd – 28th).  A grand total of £5,169.90 was raised in ticket sales and donations for the Win a Mini draw in aid of the air ambulance which relies almost entirely on public support.  Thank you for all who donated.

We also have received a letter from SERV, a local voluntary service who provide an urgent transport service at night for blood and infant milk in the Sussex region and came to Market Place on 25th June 2016 to collect donations for running costs and to raise awareness of SERV to the public.  SERV raised a grand total of £496 on the day of collection, which is enough to pay for the fuel for the Burgess Hill based bike for 6 months!  Thank you to all who donated.

  • Saturday 23rd July – The Burgess Hill Community Foodbank will be accepting donations, towards the front of Waitrose for the day.

Testimonials

"“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.”"

Susan Fleet, Managing Director
(Lea Graham Associates)

"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."

Nick Broom, Managing Director
(PVL UK Ltd)

"“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”"

Bruce Millington, Manager
(Sutton Winson Ltd)

"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. "

Angela Gill, Managing Director
(Bio Productions Ltd)
