8. CLOSE OF ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
Covid-19 has had an undeniable impact on the charity sector, and charities across the country are facing huge economic pressure. With unwavering focus, our local charities are continuing to deliver much needed support and services for local people, and we all know how invaluable their work is at this difficult time.
In recent years Knowsley Chamber has successfully won and delivered a number of Liverpool city region business support contracts. In turn, the Chamber has been able to build its reserves and is in a stable financial position.
At the November Board meeting the Directors unanimously agreed to the recommendation for a donation to be made from the reserves (not from membership income) equating to £20.00 per member company in attendance at the 31st AGM.
In this way we hope to raise at least £6,000 which will be shared between the charity organisations in current membership. To help make this possible, please register your attendance in advance for the AGM visit by following this link
