News: Raffle Prizes Required for Scouts Please

Posted on 6th March 2019

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,

Luke Bennett 5th Burgess Hill (Worlds End) Scout Group Secretary 07967 014130 L-Bennett@sky.com

Committee Members: Martin Wilkins (Chairman), Clive Everest (Group Scout Leader), Nicola Pont (Treasurer), Christine Donaldson, Tom Hylands & Maya Lamanna

"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."

"“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”"
