editorial image

Northamptonshire Chamber is offering a charity the oportunity to be its charity of 2013/14.

Each year the Chamber offers its charity members a chance to submit a tender to become its Charity of the Year. The selected charity is given exclusive membership into the Chamber’s Business Alliance Group, which sees them get free passes and tables at certain events and receive other profile-raising benefits and opportunities. The chosen charity will also be the sole beneficiary of any fundraising activities undertaken by the Chamber staff throughout the 2013/14 financial year.

When tendering, charities need to explain how they will use the opportunity of being the Chamber’s chosen Charity of the Year, and explain how they will guarantee that any money generated will be used for the benefit of Northamptonshire.

Only registered charities that are members of Northamptonshire Chamber are asked to tender.

The chosen charity, as well as being the only Chamber-supported charity for that term, will have their logo included on Northamptonshire Chamber letterheads and other literature during the course of that year, includin eBulletin newsletters, website homepage and In Business magazine.

Submissions for the above opportunity need to be with Tracey Branson by Tuesday, February 26, to be considered and a shortlist of charities will be invited to present to the Chamber staff on Tuesday, March 19.

Submissions can be sent by email to tracey.branson@northants-chamber.co.uk or by post to: Tracey Branson, Head of Operations, Northamptonshire Chamber of Commerce, Waterside House, 8 Waterside Way, Northampton NN4 7XD
