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.
"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."
"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."
"“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! ” "
"Since joining BHBPA we have found it to be a dynamic and vibrant members’ organisation, with excellent, regular and informative meetings.
