We are thrilled to announce that we have become a patron of Barnsley and Rotherham Chamber of Commerce.

Over the past six years Cannon PR has supported a wide range of businesses within the technology, professional services and food and drink sectors as well as being responsible for supporting the Sheffield City Region Launchpad Programme, responsible for helping new entrepreneurs to take their first steps in business.

We have also played an active role in supporting a number of Chamber-led initiatives including the unique Gallery Town project, designed to stimulate regeneration within Rotherham’s town centre, whilst company founder Matthew Ridsdale also sits on the Chamber’s Member Representation Council, a role which he has held since 2012.

Matthew Ridsdale, Director and Founder of Cannon PR said:

“I’ve been proud to support the work of the Chamber for more than a decade and when I decided to launch Cannon PR in 2011, one of the very first calls I made was to the Chamber.

“It’s been terrific to see the chamber grow and evolve, particularly over the past eighteen months. Last year saw Cannon PR enjoy a significant period of growth and as a Rotherham-based business we are proud to support our local Chamber over the next twelve months.

“Barnsley & Rotherham Chamber is an important organisation for local businesses, one which helps to provide support and representation and through Cannon PR’s involvement we have also been able to use our skills and expertise to support a number of community led initiatives. For me, becoming a patron is about not only supporting the local business community but helping to create opportunities to build a stronger local economy.”

Andrew Denniff, Chief Executive, Barnsley & Rotherham Chamber said:

“On behalf of everyone at the Chamber, I’d like to give a very warm welcome to our newest patron and I’m sure they will continue to play a key role in supporting our growing membership.

“Becoming a Chamber Patron is not only a commitment towards supporting the work of the Chamber, but also about illustrating how local businesses come together to support common interests such as playing an important role in the communities we serve as well as adding weight and gravitas to the role the Chamber plays in supporting businesses in both Barnsley and Rotherham and I’m delighted to welcome them on board.”
