‘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’
"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. "
"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."
"“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! ” "
""BHBPA is a really well organised and run group, great for networking and benefitting from knowledgeable local speakers with real business insight. Peter brings enthusiasm and humour which helps drive the association forward. I am glad to be part of it.""
