The gathering of members and supporters at the Woolpack last Monday had several purposes. One key thought was to take the chance to raise money for St Peter & St James Hospice, to which we regularly donate, and it proved to be a successful effort, with two Ridgeview hampers bringing in a tidy sum.
Key fundraiser at SPSJ, Carolyn Robinson, said …
I wanted to email you to thank BHBPA for supporting the Hospice at the recent Christmas Event at the Woolpack. We were very touched by the generosity of the attendees and altogether the raffle raised a magnificent £218 for the charity. What a lovely start to the month!
It was great to see so many familiar faces there and also have the opportunity to say farewell to Paul as Chair.
Wishing you a very Happy Christmas!
"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 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! ” "
""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.""
"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."
