I would like to publicise the charity summer ball a friend and I are organising in aid of the small charity for which I am Chair of the Trustees – The Loiyangalani Trust. We started nearly 10 years ago as a small group in Mid Sussex, fundraising to support a large primary school in a very poor part of northern Kenya and sponsoring some bright children through secondary and vocational education.
We are volunteers, so all the money we raise goes to help the children, for whom education is the key to a better life. Every year we look to do something different in our fundraising and this year we are having a summer ball with a modern band, good food with waiter service and a quality raffle, all at a lovely venue – Wickwoods Country Club. It would be great if some BHBPA members could come along and support us. Tables can seat up to 10 but it isn’t necessary to fill a whole table – we will group people together where they are smaller numbers.
"“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.""
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
"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."
"Since joining BHBPA we have found it to be a dynamic and vibrant members’ organisation, with excellent, regular and informative meetings.
