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
""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.""
"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! ” "
