Our on-field success over recent years has raised the profile of the club within both the sporting and business communities, and we aim for this to not only benefit ourselves but also the Cheshire region as a whole."
Chris Brown Chief Executive of Marketing Cheshire commented: "The role of Cheshire's Ambassadors will be to help spot and create opportunities for Cheshire and we were delighted that so many were able to attend. We know, Cheshire is a fantastic place to invest in, move your business to, host your conference or event in and we need our Ambassadors help to help spread the word globally.
"We currently have over 58 ambassadors committed to promoting Cheshire from all areas of business, sports and celebrity and are ready to support them in delivering the vision and turning leads into economic growth for the region."
Neville Chamberlain, Chair of Cheshire Business Leaders continued: "The ambassador programme appeals to business people or celebrities that have an emotional bond with Cheshire or have business interests here. The lunch further impassioned our ambassadors to go out and promote Cheshire and Warrington at every opportunity.
