Working with Local Schools and Charities

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 the last 12 months, the following charity events are being supported by the Chamber:

  • Chamber Golf Tournament 2017 at Moor Park Golf Club – Monday 25th September 2017, in aid of Watford Workshop raising £1800
  • Chamber Golf Tournament 2016 at Moor Park Golf Club – Monday 26th September 2016, in aid of Watford Mencap raising £2320
  • Charity Quiz 2017 at Hunton Park – Tuesday 13th June 2017, in aid of The Peace Hospice Care raising £1084
We've been members of the Watford Chamber of Commerce for a number of years now and have found that our membership helps us to engage with the other like-minded businesses, as well as keeping us updated with local matters and plans for Watford and the surrounding area. Chamber events are particularly useful in our drive to be more active in our local business community. The Chamber Team are really friendly and approachable and show a genuine interest in our business.
