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.
"“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! ” "
"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."
"“I have belonged to this group since I started my own business, Lea Graham Associates, in 1986. The association has been through several incarnations since then, but its most recent one, BHBPA, is by far the best.
It’s much more than just a networking group, although it is supremely good at that too. BHBPA is inclusive and friendly and acts like a mutual-support society. The events are stimulating, worthwhile and often great fun and I believe most members share this opinion.”"
"“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.""
