Zameer Choudrey CBE SI Pk, Chief Executive of Bestway Group, presented a cheque for £100,000 to Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity (GOSH Charity), at Bestway Group’s Head Office in Park Royal on Tuesday 27th November.

The presentation was attended by representatives from GOSH Charity, and Bestway Board of Directors, including Sir Anwar Pervez OBE H Pk, Chairman Bestway Group.

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 and relief of sickness and preservation of health.

Since 1987, Bestway Group has donated in excess of £14.8M to Bestway Foundation in the UK.  Each year the company hosts its charity race day at Ascot which is attended by suppliers, Bestway employees, trade press and members of the benefiting charity.

This year the chosen charity was GOSH Charity, which raises vital funds to support Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) and the 618 children and young people who arrive at GOSH from across the UK every day. For over 160 years the hospital has provided best-in-class care and pioneered new treatments and cures for childhood illnesses. The charity seeks to raise funds for the Hospital so that it can stay at the forefront of developing new and better ways to treat childhood diseases and pioneering numerous breakthroughs in paediatric care.

Tim Johnson, Chief Executive of GOSH  Charity commented: “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. We are very grateful for the Bestway Foundation’s ongoing support.”

Zameer Choudrey CBE SI Pk, Chief Executive of Bestway Group, added: “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.”

About the Bestway foundation: At the heart of Bestway Group’s philosophy is the desire to help those less fortunate than others by supporting charities and empowering communities in United Kingdom and Pakistan.

The emphasis on giving back to the community is part and parcel of the Board of Directors’ well-articulated corporate strategy. By focusing on the key sectors of education and health both independently as well as in partnership with specialist organisations, the Board believes that it can empower disadvantaged sections of the local community through economic regeneration and employment creation.
