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.
"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"
"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."
"“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! ” "
"“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.""
