Brand new Chamber Champions Awards to recognise outstanding community contributions

The Chamber Champions Award Ceremony is a new virtual event that has been designed to celebrate the incredible support shown by the two counties’ businesses and their individuals over the past number of months, which could include businesses providing PPE, shifting operations to making hand sanitiser, volunteering or any other further support by businesses and their employees during this time.

The Herefordshire and Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce are pleased to announce a one-off live streamed event from DRPG Studios on the evening of Friday 4 September. Seven categories have been specially designed to recognise and celebrate the achievement of our local businesses and wider community, designed specifically for businesses from the two counties, whether Member or Non-member.

Open to Members and Non-members, all businesses can enter as many categories as they wish, completely free of charge and winners will be announced on the fun packed evening, by our host Richard Hurst.
