To Whom it May Concern
You may have heard that schools in West Sussex are facing dramatic budget cuts. As a result of this, our school (The Gattons Infant School in Burgess Hill) are finding it very difficult to find money to provide basic resources for our children. Every class in our school use an Interactive Whiteboard – these are crucial to the delivery of lessons and as a tool for children to use to further their learning. However, the 8 that we currently have are old and beginning to break down. They desperately need replacing.
We are sending out an appeal to our community and beyond to ask if they could help us to fund the cost of replacing the whiteboards by donating as much or as little as they can afford, using our funding page provided on the link below;
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this mail.
"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."
"“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! ” "
"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."
"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"
