As well as having a terrific evening of fun at BHBiz two weeks ago, the audience managed to raise more than £1500 for St Peter & St James Hospice through various methods.
Wendy and Neil came to the event with guests of the hospice and set about selling raffle tickets in the early part of the evening. They had just about sold out by the time it came to draw out the numbers of the 15 winning tickets. The prizes had been donated by generous local companies.
Later in the evening we sold off some of the beautiful flowers provided by Rosanne Florists, and we also held an auction for a signed Brighton football shirt from 2018. That eventually went for over £200 and the total raised on the evening came to £1538.00. Wendy was delighted. The BHBPA is very pleased to be able to support this worthy cause.
"“I can’t speak highly enough of the BHBPA. As a small local business we feel very much part of a community and thoroughly enjoy the annual exhibition and meetings throughout the year. Over the years we have built fantastic working relationships with many BHBPA members and every meeting and event offers us opportunities to work with more. This is networking at its best! ” "
"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."
"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "
"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.
