Following a two-year Covid-19-related gap, Bestway’s annual charity race day returns with the aim of raising money for Barnardo’s.
Barnardo’s, which works to transform the lives of vulnerable children, will be the beneficiary of funds raised in 2022, anticipated to be in the region of £100,000.
The Race Day has supported over 22 charities since formation in 1994 and raised over £2.6m for nominated causes in its 28-year history.
Dawood Pervez, managing director of Bestway Wholesale said: “We’re delighted to be back at Ascot this year following one of the most disruptive and challenging periods that we’ve faced in recent times. This high profile event is hosted by our Bestway family, Sir Anwar Pervez OBE H Pk, Chairman of Bestway Group and Lord Zameer Choudrey Zameer CBE SI Pk, Group Chief Executive, 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”.
Barnardo’s chief executive Lynn Perry added: “We are delighted that Bestway has chosen to support Barnardo’s for the company’s annual Royal Ascot Charity Race Day. Barnardo’s works to bring care, love and hope to the lives of some of the UK’s most vulnerable children and young people, but we cannot do this without the generosity of our partners and supporters.
