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.
"Since joining BHBPA we have found it to be a dynamic and vibrant members’ organisation, with excellent, regular and informative meetings.
Peter Liddell does a first class job in ensuring that members’ interests are aired and addressed.
"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. "
"“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”"
"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."
