2019 has been a hectic year for the Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce; what with a new CEO and Chairman in place, with Brexit still ongoing and plenty of new and interesting events to keep the Chamber team busy!
But one of the things the team are most proud of this year is how they have been able to support some of our local Hertfordshire charities.
The Gifted Organisation supports young people to unlock their gifts and create brighter futures for themselves. The Gifted’s Private View exhibition delivered in partnership with the Lowewood Museum and by The Heritage Fund took place on May 9th 2019.
Herts Chamber of Commerce’s Alison White was delighted to be invited to this event, and even more so to be able to donate the Chamber’s first big cheque of 2019, of £500 to this amazing charity!
The second big cheque Herts Chamber was able to deliver was for a massive £2,000 to the Essex & Herts Air Ambulance Trust. EHAAT was one of the chosen ‘Chamber Charities’ for 2019, along with Hertfordshire Community Foundation (HCF); meaning that the proceeds from the silent auction that took place at the Inspiring Hertfordshire Awards 2019 on 13th June, were split between these two fantastic charities.
Briege Leahy, CEO, Herts Chamber, went to visit EHAAT on September 19th to give them their cheque and had a great time posing with the helicopters!
Helen Gray, Foundation Director, HCF, came into the Chamber office to meet Briege and receive her cheque. HHBA sends our congratulations to all concerned at the Herts Chamber.
Additionally, we would like to congratulate Gemma Rydqvist who has been promoted to the position of Relationship Manager at the Chamber, I know many of you deal with Gemma regularly and will join me in celebrating her promotion. She is joined by a new Business Engagement Manager Tom Hier, we look forward to working with them both in the future.
