Bestway Foundation UK donates £100,000 to Save the Children

Bestway Foundation UK donates £100,000 to Save the Children

Bestway’s annual Ascot Charity Race Day marks 100th year of the children’s charity

Lord Zameer Choudrey CBE SI Pk, Chief Executive of Bestway Group, and Dawood Pervez, Managing Director of Bestway Wholesale, presented a cheque for £100,000 to charity Save the Children at Bestway Group’s Head Office in Park Royal, London recently. The funds were raised through Bestway’s annual Ascot Charity Race Day held in the summer, which was attended by over 800 people.

Over 20 charities have benefited from funds raised through the event since it began in 1994, including Save the Children that first became associated with the Bestway Foundation as the chosen charity in 2004. Save the Children was chosen for a second time this year in recognition of the support the fund provides to children in need of education, health care and economic opportunities across the globe.

Save the Children’s Partnerships & Philanthropy Director Sayyeda Salam commented on the donation: “We are incredibly grateful that Save the Children was chosen as the beneficiary for Bestway’s 2019 Royal Ascot Charity Race Day. It was a huge honour to be invited to be part of this prestigious event for the second time marking Save the Children's 100th year. The very generous donation will make a real difference to help us support children in the greatest need both in the UK and globally across education, healthcare and disaster relief.”

Since 1987, Bestway Group has donated in excess of £14.8m to Bestway Foundation in the UK. Each year the company hosts a charity race day at Ascot to raise funds for charity – the event is now in its 27th year.

The Bestway Foundation UK was established by Sir Anwar Pervez in 1987, with a philosophy to support less fortunate people through the advancement of education, relief of sickness and preservation of health. At the heart of Bestway Group’s philosophy is the desire to help those less fortunate than others by supporting charities and empowering communities both in the UK and Pakistan.
