The search for Charity of the Year 2020/21

Northamptonshire Chamber is offering its charity members the chance to submit a tender to become the organisation’s Charity of the Year.

The selected charity is given exclusive membership into the Chamber’s Gold Chamber Business Partners Group, which sees them get free passes and places at certain events, the chance to sponsor a networking breakfast or lunch and receive other profile-raising benefits and opportunities. The chosen charity will also be the beneficiary of any fundraising activities undertaken by the Chamber staff throughout the 2020/21 financial year. The 2019/20 Charity of the Year is Northamptonshire Age UK.

Northamptonshire Chamber head of operations Tracey Griffiths said: “In their applications, charities must show us how they will use the opportunity of being the Chamber’s chosen Charity of the Year and explain how they will guarantee that any funds generated will be used for the benefit of people in Northamptonshire.

“Applications are in an open format and can presented in any way the charity should wish. Only registered charities that are members of Northamptonshire Chamber need respond to this tender opportunity.”

The chosen charity, as well as being the only Chamber-supported charity for that term, will have their logo included on the Chamber website and in Inbusiness


Submissions for this tender opportunity need to be with Tracey Griffiths by Friday, February 21, to be considered. A shortlist of charities will be invited to present to the Chamber staff on Wednesday, March 25.

Submissions can be sent by email to or by post to: Tracey Griffiths, Head of Operations, Northamptonshire Chamber of Commerce, Waterside House, 8 Waterside Way, Northampton, NN4 7XD.
