Applications Open for Annual Dinner Supported Charity
31 May 2022 • Sarah Medcraf
On the 30th September 400 local business representatives will convene at Gordon Castle in Fochabers for Moray Chamber of Commerce’s 17th Annual Business Dinner. The evening will celebrate the good work done by businesses in the area and culminate with the presentation of the Moray Chamber Business Award to the company that has made the biggest contribution to the local economy over the past year. This is the third year that the event is at Gordon Castle and after the success of the 2019 Dinner, it promises to be a memorable evening. The evening’s Principal Sponsor is North of Scotland Marquees, and their support allows the event to be possible.
Moray Chamber of Commerce always uses the night to raise money for a local cause. 2019’s chosen charity Kieran’s Legacy received £6,600 from the auction. Businesses are always extremely generous in their prize donations to the auction and some excellent lots are expected for 2022. On top of the earnings from the auction, the host will educate the guests of the good work that the charity currently does and is looking to do with the donation.
The chosen charity must operate within Moray and demonstrate how their work benefits the communities within the area. The application form gives the charity a chance to note how they would use the money to benefit Moray communities as well as speak about the fantastic work that they already do.
Moray Chamber of Commerce would also like to thank its other sponsors – William Grant & Sons, Johnstons of Elgin, Gordon & MacPhail, Fibre1, Forsyths and Associated Seafoods. Their support has allowed the fundraising Business Dinner to be a success and in turn enable vital funds to be raised for a local charity.
Applications close 5pm, Thursday 23rd June
