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.

""BHBPA is a really well organised and run group, great for networking and benefitting from knowledgeable local speakers with real business insight. Peter brings enthusiasm and humour which helps drive the association forward. I am glad to be part of it.""

"“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 the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "

Steve Cridland, CEO

"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. "
