News: Thanks from the Hospice

Posted on 31st May 2017

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.

 

Best wishes,

 

Carolyn

Testimonials

"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."

Wendy Agate, Community Fund Raising Manager
(St Peter & St James Hospice)

"“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”"

Bruce Millington, Manager
(Sutton Winson Ltd)

"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. "

Angela Gill, Managing Director
(Bio Productions Ltd)

"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."
