New President hosts Castlepoint Big Brekkie!

BCTC President, Peter Matthews

The management suite at Castlepoint Shopping Park was transformed into a pop up breakfast area to fundraise for Autism Wessex on World Autism Awareness Day.    Peter Matthews, the General Manager of Castlepoint and the newly appointed President of the Bournemouth Chamber of Trade and Commerce, invited chamber members to a Big Brekkie.  Over £100 was raised simply by selling sausage and bacon rolls and hot cross buns.

“It was great to have the chance to meet people and support Autism Wessex and the services they provide through the specialist Portfield School, Community Wessex, and their free Information and Advice Services,” said Peter.

Emily Pike, Corporate Partnerships Officer at Autism Wessex said: “We are delighted that Castlepoint supported our Big Brekkie campaign and would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to Peter and the team.”
