Damon Scott, Chief Executive, Dunbartonshire Chamber of Commerce, said: “The quality of the entrants this year was once again of an extremely high standard and shows what a wealth of business talent there is in West Dunbartonshire from small start-ups to larger well-established businesses. There were some real success stories and we were particularly pleased with the entries we received for our new “Chamber Business of the Year” Award. It certainly won’t be easy to choose an outright winner for this, or the other categories.”

This year we are delighted to announce that we will be supporting CHAS by way of a charity raffle at the awards evening.

CHAS is the only provider of respite and end of life care to children in Scotland with a life shortening condition, and their families. We run Scotland’s only 2 children’s’ hospices  - Rachel House in Kinross, Robin House in Balloch, as well as CHAS at Home which operates throughout the country. They are dedicated to helping families celebrate the lives of their children while they’re together. No matter how short this time may be, they are committed to making sure it’s filled with joy. With your help, we can do just that.
