I just want to thank everyone who supported the hospice, at last week’s BHBPA Pub Quiz at the Woolpack, I understand from my colleague Fiona that it was a very good, fun evening, and she was especially pleased to be able to join the team from HIlton Sharp and Clarke and come 5th!
I am pleased to let you know that £538.60 was raised from the raffle which is a terrific amount and I thought you mike like to know about some of our services and how your donation might be spent.
Over 80% of our patients are supported in their own home by our Clinical Nurse Specialists £95 will pay for one home visit.
Some of our patients benefit from physiotherapy or complementary therapies at a cost of around £37 per session.
We offer counselling to patients and their loved ones £44 will pay for a counselling session.
The average length of stay for an in-patient is around 13 days. Each day costs around £390.
I know you will understand what a significant difference this donation makes to us, and I would like to thank you all once again for supporting the hospice.
Perhaps you and some others from the association would like to come over to the hospice for a cheque presentation soon.

"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."
"“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.""
"As MP for Mid Sussex I believe passionately in the importance of a vibrant local business community in order to create and sustain fantastic opportunities that enable people to meet their responsibilities, prosper and fulfil their potential. I am committed to collaborating with BHBPA and others to be an effective collective voice for Burgess Hill."
"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."
