Bestway has presented a cheque for £100,000 to charity Save the Children. The money was raised through Bestway’s annual Ascot Charity Race Day, held in the summer and attended by over 800 people.
Over 20 charities have benefited from funds raised through the event since it began in 1994. These include Save the Children, which first became associated with the Bestway Foundation as the chosen charity in 2004.
Chief executive of Bestway Group Lord Zameer Choudrey commented: “We are delighted to support the work of Save the Children for the second time – made even more special by the fact it’s the charity’s 100th year anniversary this year. The annual Ascot Charity Race Day is just one of the ways that Bestway Foundation gives back to people in need and we are very grateful to our supplier partners and colleagues for supporting this annual event and donating generously to ticket purchases, the charity auction, tombola and other fundraising activities back in June.”
The donation of £100,000 will enable Save the Children to support almost 400 children and their parents living in poverty in the UK, by providing the tools to help their learning at home, which they simply can’t afford. This includes educational toys, books, essentials, such as a table or a bed, and advice and guidance for parents to engage in their child’s learning.
Since 1987, Bestway Group has donated in excess of £14.8 million to Bestway Foundation in the UK.
