‘Can your business spare some time to volunteer at the hospice for a day?
At St Peter & St James Hospice, we love welcoming local businesses to do some volunteering. It can be a group from as few as 2 to 10 people per day. During the day you will get the opportunity to work alongside staff and help make a real difference.
There are a variety of ways you can help through volunteering but one of the best ways at the moment is helping our warehouse sort out lots of donated items to go into our shops. It is interesting as the variety of goods is vast but what we need to do is to make sure that only saleable goods go into the Warehouse, so sorting is essential.
Any local businesses that are interested in volunteering at the hospice, please contact Carolyn Robinson on 01444 470721 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org’
"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."
"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. "
"“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”"
"The BHBPA is a fantastic hub for our business community to get together and catch up, discuss important local issues and connect new and interesting enterprises."
