Our Chamber is proud to assist local schools, colleges and charities, through numerous events, seminars, expos and meetings.
In local schools, our Chamber actively work with students in bringing about links to Chamber members; creating opportunities for work experience and interships; CV and interview guidance; career and job fairs. Our Chamber also supports the annual Watford Schools Debate Competition held at the Houses of Parliament.
During the course of the year our Chamber supports a number of local charities, by promoting fundraising events and in some cases, providing a platform at our events in which charities can present to members an overview of the good work undertaken. These events are often sponsored by members. In 2014, the following charity events are being supported by Chamber:
- Popular Peace Classics at the Purcell School of Young Musicians - Wednesday 26 February, in aid of The Peace Hospice. Details from Lorraine Marshall.
- Charity Collection at Watford FC - Saturday 15 March, in aid of British Heart Foundation. Details from Georgia McCormack
- Chamber Charity Golf Day at Aldenham Golf Club - Tuesday 13 May, in aid of The Peace Hospice. Details from Lorraine Marshall.
