Haywards Heath based IFA Mike Oliver Associates has joined forces with St Peter & St James Hospice to offer a tailored service for patients and loved ones.
Making important decisions about financial matters is never easy but during times of great personal distress, it can be much harder. To help ease this burden and allow people to focus on what is truly important, Mike Oliver Associates is offering patients and families at St Peter & St James Hospice specialised financial advice. They will receive preferential rates and professional advice on a range of issues and if clients decide to use any of the services, Mike Oliver Associates will donate 10% of its fee directly to St Peter & St James Hospice.

"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 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."
"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."
"The BHBPA is a fantastic hub for our business community to get together and catch up, discuss important local issues and connect new and interesting enterprises."
