‘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’
"“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! ” "
"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. 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."
"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."
"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."
