Here at MSVA we always do an office Secret Santa. This year it was suggested that we do something charitable with our £5.00 that we usually put into Secret Santa rather than buying a present. We decided on a local charity that supports homeless people as this is very much on our hearts at this time of year. Along with our colleagues from Sussex Oakleaf, we have also been supporting the King’s Church Hamper Project which will provide people who have fallen on hard times with some Christmas extras.
MSVA can help businesses who want to support a local charity with fundraising or in a practical way – gardening or decorating. Many of our member groups are small grassroots charities who would really benefit from the help and support of a local business. If you want to start 2019 by doing something in the community give MSVA a call and we will point you in the right direction.
"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."
"“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”"
"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. "
