Chamber members donate £1000 to Airbourne

Last night our directors presented a cheque for £1000 to Airbourne.

This money was raised via the ticket sales from the Chamber Airbourne Lunch on the 16th of August (sponsored by AP Security Ltd).

Christina said “This fantastic free air show showcases our wonderful town, seafront, hotels, restaurants, shops and businesses. We want to record our thanks to the events team at Eastbourne Borough Council, and indeed the whole team of bucket collectors, marshals, exhibitors and indeed pilots who put on such a wonderful event each year. This cheque represents the proceeds from our event”.  

David Tutt (Leader of Eastbourne Borough Council) said “My thanks to members of the Chamber for this generous contribution to Airbourne and for their continued support of the event. I know that you are only too aware of the challenge it is for us to run this event especially given the financial constraints that the national government has placed upon all local authorities and so the support that we receive from the local business community and those attending the event via the bucket collection really does make a difference”
