DCC Forms New Partnership with Dumbarton Football Club

Dunbartonshire Chamber of Commerce is delighted to have entered a working relationship with Dumbarton Football Club.

The new partnership will see the two parties work together to help each other to flourish and work towards achieving their ambitions.

Damon Scott, Chief Executive of Dunbartonshire Chamber of Commerce, welcomed the new partnership: “We are delighted to connect with Dumbarton Football Club to look at ways we can work together for our mutual benefit and that of the wider economy and community.

"Initially, DFC will get behind the Loves Local Campaign the Chamber is leading on in our Dunbartonshire Towns and we have already partnered up to present a fantastic whisky-tasting event along with Chivas.

“There are also plans to present a series of ongoing business networking events and we are discussing the possibility of leadership and motivating teams themes for some sessions."

DFC general manager Antonia Love said: "Dumbarton FC are hugely grateful for the support and sponsorship we receive from local businesses which also employ many of our supporters.

"The club wants to offer some form of assistance to those who are inevitably finding times very challenging in the face of the coronavirus pandemic and its economic impact.

"It became clear during discussions that the club and the Chamber had a sharing of views as to our responsibilities and roles within the wider community.

"We agreed that we should forge a partnership, with Dumbarton FC aligning ourselves with and supporting their 'Together for Business' Covid-19 business resilience strategy.

"We spoke about several different ways of supporting the community and local businesses in their emergence from the Covid-19 crisis and beyond.

"The club will host a free-to-attend event at the stadium at the end of lockdown. The objective will be to support a process of relationship building, networking opportunities and knowledge transfer events.

"We believe that such networking events, in partnership with the Dunbartonshire Chamber of Commerce, will help to support businesses to emerge from this difficult period with an opportunity to lay the foundations for future success, incorporating a legacy element leading to dissemination of knowledge and expertise to a greater number of businesses in the future."
