BUSINESS owners joined together at a Clydebank hotel last week for Dunbartonshire Chamber of Commerce’s main event of the year.

The chamber, an organisation which promotes, represents, and supports businesses across West Dunbartonshire hosted its annual Christmas lunch at the Golden Jubilee Conference Hotel in Dalmuir on Friday.

Clydebank Post: Around 100 people attended the event and were treated to insights from guest speakers including Louise Harkiss and Derek Mair who spoke about how to have a successful mindset going into 2024.

Clydebank Post: A raffle held on the day raised £1,250 for Erskine Veterans Charity. This was organised as part of the chamber’s Armed Forces Programme, ChamberFORCE.

The event was compered by Denis Flanagan, commercial and logistics director at the venue, and was rounded up by a vote of thanks from Damon Scott, chief executive of the chamber.

Clydebank Post: Mr Scott said: “The lunch was another fantastic chamber event that brought our wonderful business community together to celebrate at the end of the year.

“We are incredibly grateful for all the support we received to make the event such a success including headline sponsorship from Clydebank-based, facilities management company, Sectorserve Group as well as from Adsmart from Sky and the Golden Jubilee Conference Hotel.

“As a not-for-profit organisation sponsorship of this kind is really important to help support our ongoing activities to make a positive impact on our local economy and communities.”

“We also had some amazing raffle prizes thanks to the generosity of our fantastic network and were delighted to raise £1250 in support of Erskine Veterans Charity.”

“We continue to be immensely thankful to our members and partners who support the chamber across the year.

“We are continuing to develop the chamber as a “Stakeholder” organisation with members playing an increasingly active and important part and look forward to growing the organisation and our network in 2024.”
