Members enjoyed an inspiring presentation from Adam Head Coach of Sevenoaks Powerchair Football Club and star player Myles and heard about the clubs continued success story!

Our first Westerham networking meeting of 2019 was held at Valence School last Wednesday.  We had a great turnout of members and a few new faces who were welcomed by our regular Westerham networking group.  Thanks to Sophie and the team at Valence School for hosting and to Adam McEvoy and Myles Miller for the hugely inspiring presentation about the Sevenoaks Powerchair Football Club. Myles shared his story about how Powerchair Football has changed his life for the better. For more information visit sevenoakspfc.org.uk or find them on Facebook, Instagram & Twitter.  You can help raise vital funds for the club by donating to the Sevenoaks Mayor’s Fund

As always, we offered a business card draw and all proceeds raised will go to the chosen Westerham charity of the year. Chamber members are currently being asked to complete a survey to help us choose three charities to support at our events.  To take part in the survey please click HERE.  William Addis from Thackray Williams was the winner of a bottle of prosecco – Congratulations Will!
