An IFA has won an award for his exceptional commitment to charity at the first ever BHBiz Awards.
Mike Oliver, of Mike Oliver Associates Financial Services, received the ‘Charity Champion’ award at the event which took place recently at the Brighton Amex Community Stadium. It was hosted by the Burgess Hill Business Parks Association (BHBPA) and was established to highlight outstanding business accomplishments in the local area.
Judges Gordon Reay, Grant Ashley, and Mayor of Burgess Hill Jacqui Landriani chose Oliver because of his dedicated support of organisations such as the Rotary Club, Dementia Action Alliance, Alzheimer’s Society and Chailey Heritage.
Oliver was not able to accept the award himself, as he was taking part in the recent Brighton2Paris bike ride, which he also sponsors.
He told IFA Magazine: “I am truly humbled to receive this distinction,” said Mike. “I was disappointed I couldn’t be there but the Bike Ride was a fantastic experience and a great chance to raise funds for some worthy causes. Thanks to the BHBPA and the judges for this recognition – it was a lovely surprise.”
