After a two-year gap due to the pandemic, the Bestway Ascot Charity Race Day is back on 17 June and this year aims to raise £100,000 for Barnardo’s.
Bestway’s Race Day has raised over £2.6 million and supported more than 22 charities since it began in 1994.
Central to the day are Bestway’s partner suppliers, who give generously through the funding of ticket purchases, bidding in a charity auction, and participating in a tombola and other fundraising activities on the day.
For more than 150 years, Barnardo’s has supported and protected vulnerable children and young people across the UK facing a wide range of issues.
Dawood Pervez, managing director of Bestway Wholesale, commented: “We’re delighted to be back at Ascot this year. This high-profile event is hosted by our Bestway family – Sir Anwar Pervez OBE H Pk, chairman of Bestway Group, and Lord Zameer Choudrey CBE SI Pk, group chief executive of Bestway Group – and supported by industry-leading FMCG suppliers, with an 800-strong guest list including many VIPs, politicians, key business connections and colleagues.
“Charity is at the core of what we do at Bestway Wholesale and our Charity Race Day cements the ongoing work to such charities as Barnardo’s by our family. It’s a great opportunity to bring colleagues from across the wholesale industry together in celebration of a great cause, and we are pleased to see that, after 29 years, this event is grounded into the wholesale industry calendar.”Published Date: June 16, 2022
