News: New Member – Kangaroos

Posted on 19th March 2018

Fundraising and Communications Co-ordinator, Samantha Norgate, is delighted to have recently joined BHBPA, representing local special needs charity, Kangaroos.

Samantha has worked for the charity for six years and in that time has seen it grow and evolve.

Kangaroos provides a much-needed service in the community, providing all year after school clubs and holiday activities for children and young adults with a range of learning disabilities and complex additional needs, as well as offering valuable respite for their families in and around Mid Sussex.

Their office is based in Haywards Heath and they hire venues in Burgess Hill, Haywards Heath and Cuckfield, with their long-term aim of one day having a centre of their own.
Samantha is currently seeking teams of golfers to take part in Kangaroos 4th annual charity Golf Day on Friday 11th May at Mid Sussex Golf Club in Ditchling as well as encouraging local businesses to help sponsor this fantastic fundraising event, along with offers of auction, raffle and golf related prizes.

If you are able to help in anyway, please get in touch with Samantha asap

"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."

Mims Davies MP, Member of Parliament for Mid Sussex

"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."

Nick Broom, Managing Director
(PVL UK Ltd)

"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)

"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. "

Steve Cridland, CEO
(Burgess Hill Town Council)
