Bestway Foundation was established by Sir Anwar Pervez in 1987 as the charitable arm of the Bestway Group, with a philosophy to support less fortunate people through the advancement of education and healthcare. Since inception Bestway Foundation has donated more than £35 million to charitable causes, including donations to charities, hospitals and schools as well as the funding of university scholarships.
The £100,000 being donated to The National Brain Appeal was raised through Bestway’s annual Ascot Charity Race Day held in June this year, which was attended by over 800 of Bestway’s key business contacts, supplier partners, colleagues, press and the charity. The Charity Race Day is one of Bestway Wholesale’s largest corporate events in the calendar, supported by supplier partners for over 30 years. Over 26 charities have benefited from funds raised through the event since it began in 1994.
Claire Wood Hill, CEO of The National Brain Appeal, commented on the donation, “We are incredibly grateful to Bestway for supporting The National Brain Appeal. Our charity is dedicated to transforming the lives of the millions of people affected by neurological conditions. The £100,000 raised will help us to continue funding pioneering research, innovative treatments, and world-class facilities at Queen Square. We would like to extend our thanks to everyone involved in helping to raise this fantastic amount.”
The Lord Choudrey added, “We are absolutely delighted to support the work of The National Brain Appeal charity for the second time as it’s a charity that is very close to our hearts. Charity is at the core of what we do here at Bestway – we are extremely dedicated to our social responsibility and incredibly committed to giving back to the communities within which we operate.”
