St Peter & St James Hospice supports, empowers and cares for local people towards the end of life. We provide expert and compassionate hospice care to adults living with terminal illness in Haywards Heath, Burgess Hill, Lewes, Uckfield and the surrounding villages. All our services are free of charge, and we rely on the generosity of our community to help cover more than 80% of our running costs.
We are constantly looking at ways at generating future income, and after a lot of research, are keen to get involved with Payroll Giving.
So firstly please accept our apologies if your company already is involved in Payroll Giving, but we thought we would cast our net as widely as possible to let you know about this simple, flexible and tax effective way for your employees to donate to the hospice on a regular basis. To enable you to understand how Payroll Giving works, and how beneficial it could be to your staff and your company, we are attaching a document explaining how it works in practice.
If there is a designated person within your company who would deal with these sorts of initiatives, then could I please ask you to pass this letter on to him or her. We would ideally like to visit your company to explain Payroll Giving in more detail, so if you are interested in getting involved, please contact me or Neil Taylor (firstname.lastname@example.org / 01444 470721) to arrange a meeting.
"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. "
"Since joining BHBPA we have found it to be a dynamic and vibrant members’ organisation, with excellent, regular and informative meetings.
Peter Liddell does a first class job in ensuring that members’ interests are aired and addressed.
"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."
