News: Article from Hospice Magazine, ‘Caring’

Posted on 11th October 2016

Hello and welcome…to our latest edition of Caring Magazine.

The BHBPA is delighted to have a special relationship with St Peter & St James, which goes back over many years.  But why do we choose to support the Hospice on a regular basis?   The reasons are many and varied, but for our Association it’s all about community.

St Peter & St James plays a vital role in our community and we are proud to play a small part in providing much needed funds for its on-going, vital work.   There cannot be a member of the BHBPA who has not personally known someone who has benefitted from the expert care provided by the Hospice.  We have built a special relationship with Carolyn Robinson – and other members of the team – who attend many of our members’ meetings.   Our contributions from our annual pub quiz and Burgess Hill Means Business exhibition amount to a few hundred pounds which in the great scheme of things is just a drop in the ocean of what is needed by the Hospice.  So what else can we do?  Spread the word to our members, employees, family and friends – the more people who know about the Hospice, the more likely donations, legacies and bequests will follow.

We are delighted to see several of our members also support the Hospice on an-going basis – Bennett Christmas and AM&M to name but two.  They, like us, have witnessed the remarkable service provided to our community and want to contribute with fundraising.

We are proud to support St Peter & St James and plan to continue for many years to come.
