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
"“I have belonged to this group since I started my own business, Lea Graham Associates, in 1986. The association has been through several incarnations since then, but its most recent one, BHBPA, is by far the best.
It’s much more than just a networking group, although it is supremely good at that too. BHBPA is inclusive and friendly and acts like a mutual-support society. The events are stimulating, worthwhile and often great fun and I believe most members share this opinion.”"
"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. "
"As the local hospice for the area, it’s great that we receive so much support from the BHBPA. Last year the members raised an amazing £2150 through activities such as Bake Off and the BHBiz Awards. Each well planned members meeting enables good networking opportunities and speakers that are relevant to the present climate and local issues. We are proud to be members of BHBPA."
"Regular, well organised events, excellent updates and information by email along with a warm welcome from the Chair and Coordinator are just some of the positives at BHBPA."
