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 firstname.lastname@example.org or call me on 07790 157772.
Young at Heart – Community Partnership
"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."
"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."
"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. "
"“We have been members of BHBPA from its inception, and seen the organisation steadily grow and expand into the dynamic entity it is today, bringing positive benefits to all its members.""
