Over 300 businesses enjoyed a fantastic afternoon with the St Albans Chamber of Commerce on Friday 22 April for their annual St George’s Day Lunch. Debenhams Ottaway sponsored the champagne drinks reception which started off the event.

The Chamber invited some special guests along including the Guest speaker comedy legend, Barry Cryer OBE who proved to be highly entertaining with the audience asking for more at the end of his spot!  Also in attendance and in line with a special birthday last week a lookalike Queen Elizabeth, a Centurion, MP Anne Main and Mayor Cllr Salih Gaygusuz.

Lisa Bates- Wallis, Executive Director said “We had a fantastic afternoon at Sopwell House with fantastic food and service again this year. I am delighted that we were able to raise so much money for Mount Vernon Charitable Trust and also The Ollie Foundation. A huge thank you to all of our sponsors and the generous people donating auction items, bidding for them or giving up their time to make the event such a huge success”.
