Chamber Summer BBQ raises over £400 for Cranleigh Christmas Lights

Chamber Summer BBQ raises over £400 for Cranleigh Christmas LightsGuests attending the Cranleigh Chamber of Commerce Summer BBQ yesterday evening raised more than £400 towards the cost of the Cranleigh Christmas Lights.

With attendance at the event more than doubling compared to last year, the Chamber Summer BBQ at The Richard Onslow was perfectly timed to coincide with the arrival of the British summer.

More than 40 Chamber members enjoyed delicious BBQ food and refreshing glasses of Pimms, and an evening of socialising with local business leaders.

Hosting the event, Cranleigh Chamber of Commerce president Richard Graham reflected on a successful year for the Chamber, with membership now standing at 123 local businesses.

Richard also thanked committee member John Taylor of The Richard Onslow for his valuable contribution to Cranleigh Chamber of Commerce over the past year. John is moving to Devon with his family this summer.

A draw was held for the 100 Club, with Cockerill Shoes winning the £100 prize this quarter.

100 Club chairman Roger Coupe encouraged more Chamber members to sign-up for this initiative, which offers a predictable source of funding towards the Cranleigh Christmas Lights each year.

A raffle offered prizes kindly donated by members Santa Fir, Charlotte Hunter Nutrition and Travel Retail Training.

Christine Martin of Travel Retail Training also generously donated gift bags for every guest.

Our next events are an awards evening for participants in the Chamber’s Up Your Game customer service programme, taking place on Tuesday 9th August, and an evening networking event at Rudgwick Brickworks on Wednesday 14th September.
