Back in the Summer of 2016, BGL Group’s Exec Board set themselves a gruelling challenge of raising £24,000 in six weeks as part of BGL Group’s ambition of donating £3 million to good causes and impacting 250,000 people over the next few years.
The money raised funds the building of a new health clinic in Zambia. The clinic features a specialised maternity unit with delivery and antenatal rooms, sanitation and waiting facilities A desparately needed HIV ward is also being built as part of the facility. The health clinic will support a population of 11,000.
Each Exec Board member and their team were set the challenge of raising £3,000 each in six weeks. 40 employees from across the UK and Europe took part in a sailing challenge on the Solent off Southampton on 1 October 2016. For some, it was their first experience on the water.
Over £25,000 was reached thanks to the generosity of BGL employees, partners, friends and families.
