Welcome to the Burgess Hill Team page!
The Team Leader for South Mid Sussex CFRs is Nickie, whose primary responsibility is maintaining all aspects of fundraising, procurement and Public Access Defibrillators (PAD Sites)
The Scheme Leader for Burgess Hill & surrounding areas is Simon, who manages all operational aspects of the CFR Team.
Matt is our dedicated and experienced Associate Trainer, who along with Dan from Bolney ensures that our training evenings are never dull!
The Burgess Hill Team provides cover to the town of Burgess Hill with our response area also covering some of Haywards Heath, Cuckfield, north Hassocks and Bolnore Village.
Our team currently has 3 active responders
- Nickie (Team Leader)
- Matt (Associate Trainer)
We are currently recruiting for more responders to join and help build upon this existing team. If you are interested in becoming a community First Responder in one of the above areas please contact us using our contact form and you will be contacted to meet for an informal interview with the scheme leader.
Over the past years, Fundraising has played a vital and important part in ensuring the SMS CFRs have the equipment we need to be able to provide the service to our local community.
If it were not for the generous donations from various local organisations and individuals, backed up by our excellent Fundraising Team, we would not have the equipment that we are proud to have today.

- Hurstpierpoint Charity Shop
- Rotary Club of the Sussex Vale
- Burgess Hill Round Table
- Friends and Neighbours

Our Fundraising Team
We are very fortunate to have the expertise of 2 very experienced fundraisers, whose local knowledge of the area has proved invaluable. However, with any Team, we are always looking for new members to bolster our efforts and help to provide assistance with our fundraising and awareness raising events.
