AGE UK West Sussex plans to offer multiple venues throughout the month at much reduced hours. Imagine how confusing this will be – particularly for the elderly in their later years. We need to retain a day centre in Burgess Hill for continuity of care, feeling of belonging, familiar faces in the same place every day of the week which has been specially altered to cater for the elderly.
The community has come together with the support of Burgess Hill Town Council and set up Young at Heart Community Partnership with the aim of re-opening the centre in April 2018. We are actively applying for charitable status and seeking grants not only from MSDC and WSCC but also third parties such as Sussex Community Fund, Hall and Woodhouse Community Chest, Ernest Kleinwort Charitable Trust, Waitrose, Tesco and many, many more.
Since this is a community project, and with the time of year, we would like to invite the members of the Burgess Hill Business Parks Association to join H & D Air Conditioning and pledge to donate to Young at Heart – Community Partnership rather than send Christmas cards to their clients. In essence, saving staff time, saving the environment and supporting a local cause they may all take benefit from in years to come.
If you wish to discuss this further please do not hesitate to get in touch. The central email address in email@example.com or call me on 07790 157772.
Young at Heart – Community Partnership
"The BHBPA is a fantastic hub for our business community to get together and catch up, discuss important local issues and connect new and interesting enterprises."
"As MP for Mid Sussex I believe passionately in the importance of a vibrant local business community in order to create and sustain fantastic opportunities that enable people to meet their responsibilities, prosper and fulfil their potential. I am committed to collaborating with BHBPA and others to be an effective collective voice for Burgess Hill."
"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. "
"“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.”"
