Chamber of Trade thanked for generous £1,000 donation

Harborough’s Chamber of Trade and Commerce has been thanked by the town’s Late Night Shopping Committee for a generous donation of £1,000.

Chamber president Pete Whelan said: “Supporting events which attract visitors and drive footfall into the town is a fundamental aim of the chamber. We’ve supported Late Night Shopping for a number of years and will continue to do so in future. The team should be proud of delivering such a successful event in 2013, the fantastic turnout was testament to their efforts.”

Mark Faulkner, co-chairman of the Late Night Shopping committee, said: “I’d like to say thank you to Pete and the chamber for supporting the event.”
