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.
"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."
"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. "
"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."
"Regular, well organised events, excellent updates and information by email along with a warm welcome from the Chair and Coordinator are just some of the positives at BHBPA."
