Community Transport Sussex   Charity Halloween Ball  – 26th October 2018

Most people have seen the Blue Bird buses transporting members of our local community around the county in our fleet of mini-buses. Community Transport Sussex has local depots at Mid Sussex, (Chailey near Burgess Hill) , East Grinstead, Horsham and Crawley – providing over 8000 journeys a month to residents who for various reasons such as health and mobility, struggle to access mainstream transport.

CTS is the local Charity which runs the Blue Bird Community Transport service – and every year we arrange events and activities to raise essential funds to ensure the Charity is sustainable and available for our residents in Sussex.

Our biggest fundraising event of the year is a Grand Charity Fund Raising Halloween Ball to be held at the Gatwick Hilton Hotel (South) on Friday 26th October 2018. The event will include a 2 course dinner, live Halloween themed entertainment, a live auction of fantastic donated experiences and items such as a week in a 5* French Chateau for 12 people, a weekend in a country Sussex cottage, vouchers for afternoon teas,  hair and pampering sessions and much more. There will be a raffle and dancing till midnight with our DJ. Halloween dressing up and make-up is optional but encouraged !

A key feature of the evening will be a Virtual Reality ‘scare’ experience for the braver members of the audience !! being provided by ABCOM IT in Burgess Hill.

CTS (Community Transport Sussex)  offers a Dial-A-Ride service to people of all ages who can register with us for transport – there is no charge for membership. We provide a door to door service for passengers who require transport to hospital and doctor’s appointments, shopping trips, visits to friends and family, which helps to alleviate social isolation for people who do not get the opportunity to get out very often and may be located away from the main bus routes

Our mini-buses transport our members to their elder care centres, with a helping hand from their front door from our sociable and fully qualified drivers. All of our buses have disability access and tail lifts. We also have volunteer drivers who transport our members in their own cars for hospital and medical appointments.

Testimonials

"“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! ” "

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."
