Bestway Group has raised £100k this year for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity (GOSH Charity) through its Bestway Foundation.
Zameer Choudrey, the wholesaler’s chief executive, presented a cheque to the charity at the company’s head office in Park Royal, north-west London, last week.
The rest of the Bestway board attended, including chairman Anwar Pervez, who established the Bestway Foundation in 1987.
GOSH Charity raises vital funds to support Great Ormond Street Hospital and the children and young people the hospital treats, helping it to stay at the forefront of developing new and better ways to treat childhood diseases and pioneering numerous breakthroughs in paediatric care.
Bestway Group has given away more than £14.8m through the Bestway Foundation in the UK since 1987.
The company hosts its charity race day at Ascot which is attended by suppliers, Bestway employees, trade press and members of the benefiting charity every year.
“I would like to thank the Bestway Foundation for their generous donation, which will help us to support the seriously ill children and young people from across the UK who are cared for at the hospital,” said Tim Johnson, chief executive of GOSH Charity. “We are very grateful for the Bestway Foundation’s ongoing support.”
Choudrey said: “We are delighted to support the work of Great Ormond Street Hospital for the second time. The hospital and its staff are doing a wonderful job in treating seriously ill children and providing them and their families a better future.”
