The Annual Weymouth and Portland Chamber of Commerce Presidents Ball – 11th May 2013

The Annual Weymouth and Portland Chamber of Commerce Presidents Ball was held at The Rembrandt Hotel, Weymouth on Saturday 11th May with 70 local business people attending.


The evening was successfully arranged by the Chambers events team run by Alison Cocks and Trevor Mathews who worked with President Mark Blunden to ensure an enjoyable evening was had by all attending.


A raffle was held on the evening with all proceeds going to local charity, Hangers Heroes which supports five very local good causes including: The Front Skate Park, M.V. Freedom, Dorset Search and Rescue, Stella Hayward Riding for the Disabled and Westfield Arts College.


After some formalities and excellent food and service from The Rembrandt staff, the guests danced the night away to local band The Crack who were on excellent form.


President of The Chamber Mark Blunden said ‘I am so pleased that so many people attended what was a very relaxed and fun evening. I am also most grateful to Alison and Trevor for all the hard work gone into arranging another Chamber Ball. I am now much looking forward to our Autumn Ball on the 19th October at The Sailing Academy’.

Nina Hanger of Hangers Heroes said ‘We had a great evening and would like to thank Mark Blunden for choosing our charity to benefit from the raffle held during the evening and to all the people who supported the event.”
