St Helens Chamber has been named ‘Chamber of the Year’ 2016 at the British Chambers of Commerce Annual Awards, which took place in London last night (Thursday 24th November).
The Chamber takes the prestigious title for the third time in the last 10 years – the only Chamber in the country to have achieved this accolade.
Graham Worsley, Chairman of GPW Recruitment & St Helens Chamber commented: “I am immensely proud of the work of St Helens Chamber and the contribution we make to improve the local economy for the benefit of St Helens businesses and people. To have this recognised nationally is wonderful, and to be the only Chamber to have won this Award three times is exceptional.”
St Helens beat off stiff competition from Chambers around the country to win the title at an evening of celebration at the Brewery in London. The Chamber, which supports over 1000 businesses, impressed judges with the excellent range of support they offer in St Helens and their high levels of engagement with the rest of the Accredited Chamber of Commerce network.
Francis Martin, President of the British Chambers of Commerce said:
“St Helens Chamber’s growth and level of market penetration in recent years demonstrates its close alignment to the needs and demands of its local business community. Close partnerships with other Chambers is a testament to its dedication to the network. St Helens is a truly deserving winner of this prestigious award.”
