To whom it may concern,
The 5th Burgess Hill (Worlds End) Scout Group are fundraising to raise funds towards building a new Scout Hut at our location behind Wivelsfield train station in Burgess Hill.
Originally built in the early 1960s, the hut has deteriorated significantly over the years of regular use. We have recently been lucky enough to acquire the land the hut sits on, which gives us the opportunity to build a new, modern and purpose-built premises which will benefit our Scouts and potentially also the wider community as the hut is also used by other groups and organisations from time to time.
To help us in our efforts, we are looking for donations (big and small) to offer as prizes for a Raffle Draw, which will take place at our AGM on Friday 10th May 2019. We have acquired a Raffle Licence to maximise our ticket sales and have been fortunate enough to secure two tickets to New York, flying with Virgin Atlantic Airways.
We would be extremely grateful if you would consider donating a prize. Prizes we consider will attract the most sales will be our top prizes and will mention the sponsor on the ticket. All prizes will be gratefully received and raffled and a full list of prizes, as well as the donating company, will be made available.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at the below contact details, or speak to our committee member who has made contact with you.
Thanks in advance for your consideration,

"“We have been members of BHBPA from its inception, and seen the organisation steadily grow and expand into the dynamic entity it is today, bringing positive benefits to all its members.""
"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."
