News: Bennett Oakley Pair in Half Marathon

Posted on 18th June 2019

Louise and Patsy are no ordinary ladies! Their first mission was to become ‘Ultimate Warriors’. Their second bright idea was to enter a half-marathon after only two running sessions together! Crazy you say….absolutely!!

Louise and Patsy are colleagues working at BHBPA Member  Bennett Oakley Solicitors. This is their first ever half-marathon and they have decided to make it challenging by entering a trail running event, namely the Serpent Trail Half-Marathon. At the time of writing, they have just ten weeks to go. Can they go from zero to running heroines?? They need all the help they can get so please give generously!

They have chosen to raise funds for St Peter and St James Hospice as the hospice has been exemplary in their care of friends of the ladies that have passed away. They are also currently caring for a friend who is in the hospice receiving palliative care.

Louise and Patsy are colleagues working at BHBPA Member  Bennett Oakley Solicitors. They would appreciate some assistance in sponsoring them to raise money for donation to charitable causes. Please click on the link


They are using Virgin Money to raise sponsorship as they pass on 100% of the proceeds to the charity.

"As the local hospice for the area, it’s great that we receive so much support from the BHBPA. Last year the members raised an amazing £2150 through activities such as Bake Off and the BHBiz Awards. Each well planned members meeting enables good networking opportunities and speakers that are relevant to the present climate and local issues. We are proud to be members of BHBPA."

Wendy Agate, Community Fund Raising Manager
(St Peter & St James Hospice)

"“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! ” "

Judi Arditi, Director
(Travail Employment Group)

"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."
