Thank you for the email. You beat me to it!
We all thought it was a great night – fun questions and a good range of subject matter. Having won last year, I too was thankful that we did not win, although it was not for want of trying! One of our team members is a volunteer at the hospice and it turned out he had a very extensive general knowledge. The things you find out about people when out of the office environment.
Anyway, we were delighted to receive the donation and the money was checked and total was a fantastic £427 . It was great to see so many people enjoying themselves and supporting the hospice . I will be writing to Lance to thank him.
I could do a certificate this time to make it different and I am around Tues-Fri next week, if you are free anytime then?
Many thanks once again for your help and support.
St Peter & St James Hospice
"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! ” "
"“We have been members of BHBPA from its inception, and seen the organisation steadily grow and expand into the dynamic entity it is today, bringing positive benefits to all its members.""
"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "
