A HELPING HAND THIS CHRISTMAS
Could your company give a helping hand to families and individuals in need this Festive Season?
Many local people on low incomes are struggling with the rising cost of living and Christmas can be a particularly difficult time with extra expense but no extra money. A partnership of local organisations is collecting donations of food from a list of items needed to make up Christmas Food Hampers.
The Food Hampers will be delivered to 200 families and individuals in the Burgess Hill area in time for Christmas. Recipients must be nominated by an agency which has knowledge of their circumstances, such as Social Services, Schools, Health Visitors, Citizens Advice Bureau.
Could your company fill some boxes with items from the list you can find below this article? We will provide you with the boxes.
The groups organising the initiative include Burgess Hill District Lions Club, The King’s Church Mid-Sussex, Burgess Hill Food Bank, Burgess Hill Town Council, Burgess Hill Youth, Tesco, and Burgess Hill & District Rotary Club.
If you have any questions about the Hamper Scheme please contact Jennifer O’Grady at Burgess Hill Town Council on 01444 238207 (9am-3pm) or email email@example.com
Thank you very much.

"“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”"
"“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! ” "
"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."
"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. "
