News: A Helping Hand This Christmas

Posted on 3rd October 2018

A HELPING HAND THIS CHRISTMAS

Could your company give a helping hand to families and individuals in need this Festive Season?

Many local people on low incomes are struggling with the rising cost of living and Christmas can be a particularly difficult time with extra expense but no extra money. A partnership of local organisations is collecting donations of food from a list of items needed to make up Christmas Food Hampers.

The Food Hampers will be delivered to 200 families and individuals in the Burgess Hill area in time for Christmas. Recipients must be nominated by an agency which has knowledge of their circumstances, such as Social Services, Schools, Health Visitors, Citizens Advice Bureau.

Could your company fill some boxes with items from the list below?  We will provide you with the boxes.

The groups organising the initiative include Burgess Hill District Lions Club, The King’s Church Mid-Sussex, Burgess Hill Food Bank, Burgess Hill Town Council, Burgess Hill Youth and Burgess Hill & District Rotary Club.

If you are able to support this project please contact Jennifer at Burgess Hill Town Council by email to jennifer@burgesshill.gov.uk or telephone 01444 238207 (9-3 daily).

Thank you very much

Jennifer O’Grady
Projects and Administrative Officer

Peter Hook, Manager
(Computer Systems Engineers)

"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

"Regular, well organised events, excellent updates and information by email along with a warm welcome from the Chair and Coordinator are just some of the positives at BHBPA."

Mike Oliver, Owner
(Mike Oliver Associates)

"“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.”"

Susan Fleet, Managing Director
