Pitts Presentation Director’s determination to help fight Diabetes type 1
Pitts Finance Director Rachel Cowling and her husband put on an annual music concert ‘Sing for a Cure’ that fundraises exclusively for The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), a charity committed to eradicating Type 1 diabetes. Since 2015 Sing for a Cure created by Rachel and her husband Matt, has raised over £15,000 for Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).
JDRF, a charity which has pledged not to stop until they have created a world without Type 1 diabetes. Type 1 diabetes has touched the lives of many children and adults around the UK, including Matt and Rachel Cowling and their son Ben. Ben was diagnosed at the age of 7 and is now 18. Through their personal experience, they have come to realise the importance of research into how people with Type 1 diabetes can lead lives independent from the shadow of injections and needles.
The most recent show in March of this year, ‘This is ME!’ was the fourth show and the second time where all the music was live, incorporating over 30 songs from hit musicals with a matinee and evening performance in East Grinstead. Everyone involved gives their time, enthusiasm and talent for free. It’s a fun filled experience for all the family.
Plans are afoot already for the next two years’ concerts. Watch this space! https://www.facebook.com/singforacure/

"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
"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. "
"“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! ” "
