HM The Queen praises Chambers’ contribution to business communities during Coronavirus as more firms reopen

June 19, 2020

We are delighted that Her Majesty The Queen has offered support to businesses as they reopen, and very proud that Her Majesty has praised the contribution Chambers of Commerce across the UK are making to help firms, champion trade and rebuild communities, in a letter released today.

The letter from Her Majesty, Patron of the British Chambers of Commerce, came as The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited local businesses in Norfolk to hear about their experiences of the pandemic and how they are beginning to return to a new normal.

The letter reads:

As many organisations around the country are reopening, I send my warmest best wishes and support to business communities throughout the United Kindgom. Commonwealth and across the world.

At a time of great difficulty for many, it is heart-warming to see the civic response and generosity of so many businesses, small and large, to the challenges posed, whether supporting the health sector or vulnerable communities.

As Patron of the British Chambers of Commerce, it gives me great pride to see the contribution you and your members are making to help firms, champion trade and rebuild communities.

I wish all businesses every success in their endeavours in the weeks and months ahead.

Elizabeth R.

John Bridge OBE DL, Chief Executive of Cambridgeshire Chambers of Commerce, commented: “The Queen’s personal message of support will be a huge morale boost to our business communities at this complex and sensitive time.

“We are grateful that Her Majesty has recognised the crucial role Chambers of Commerce play supporting businesses and communities through the pandemic, and as we restart, rebuild and renew the economy.”
