Sussex IFA Mike Oliver Associates has been named as a major sponsor for next month’s Great Haywards Heath Bike Ride (HHBR).
The firm, which was recently announced as a key sponsor for the Haywards Heath Lions Club Swimarathon in April, will lend its support to the event for the eighth year running, having done so since the bike ride began in 2011.
Once again, participants will cycle one of four routes across Mid Sussex before crossing the finish line at The Broadway, where they will be greeted with a variety of entertainment and a medal.
Organisers hope the event will build on last year’s record total, which amounted to more than £14,000 for three chosen charities: Age UK West Sussex, Sussex Oakleaf and Sussex Autism Support.
This year’s event will raise funds for the Air Ambulance Service and Kangaroos, a local disability support charity based in Haywards Heath.
Principal Mike Oliver said: “We are thrilled to be supporting the Haywards Heath Bike Ride once again. I truly believe that it is one of the most rewarding charity events in the Mid Sussex area. There’s always a great sense of camaraderie among competitors as well as a great ambience.
“Cycling has always been a great passion of mine and this is a fantastic opportunity to combine one of my favourite hobbies with fundraising for two incredibly worthy causes. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone take part on the day.”
The Great Haywards Heath Bike Ride takes place on Sunday 15 April from 8AM at Orange Square. There’s also a free Trike Ride for those children who can’t ride and entertainment all day from 11.00 am. To find out more, visit: www.haywardsheathlive.org.uk/hh-bike-ride/
"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! ” "
"“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”"
"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. "
