The Chamber Christmas lunch raised £1500 for charity.
Without Government guidance to the contrary, we decided to support the hospitality industry and proceed with our Christmas Business Lunch. Over 130 members attended and enjoyed an excellent lunch with valuable business networking on Friday 10th December.
Some members had not seen Chamber colleagues for many months and really appreciated the opportunity to meet up and share concerns about their businesses during the pandemic. In addition, the members raised £1,500 for The Samaritans and The Beachy Head Chaplaincy Team.
Both charities work overtime at Christmas and provide much needed support to Eastbourne's residents and visitors. The President, Nicky Fisher, said "We were delighted to support the Grand Hotel and these two worthy charities with £1500 raised by our valuable raffle."
