We only look a little wet! It’s a good job we did not wait until after the tournament to take the photos!
As I have said many times, the hospice is incredibly grateful to BHBPA for all its support of the hospice. The BHBiz Awards was such a fun event and to have raised £2,500 was phenomenal amount of money. We included all the sponsorship money that I think Estie is sorting out?
We often get asked how the money is spent and I thought you might find it useful to see some of the costs that could be covered with the donation.
£600 could train a team of ten new hospice volunteers
£384 could pay for a Healthcare Assistant for a week
£318 could pay to clean the hospice for a week
£112 could pay for a home visit by our palliative consultant
£60 could pay for four complementary therapy sessions in the Beacon View Wellbeing Centre
£27 could pay for one hour of counselling
£23 could pay for one hour of support in a patient’s own home
£19 could pay for one hour of care from a hospice nurse
£10 could help provide a bath for a patient
I hope the event on Tuesday at Q Leisure went well.
"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
"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."
""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.""
"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. "
