News: Quiz Night Money Raised

Posted on 20th March 2019

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.

 

Best wishes

"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."
