UKWA guests dig deep for Transaid

[ July 18, 2016   //   ]

Guests at this year’s UKWA annual lunch and awards at London’s Dorchester Hotel, raised over £9,000 for international development charity, Transaid.

Thanking the UKWA members for their generosity, Transaid’s CEO Gary Forster described how over 6,000 African drivers had been trained by Transaid and drastically reduced the amount of wasted medicines and across the continent.

UKWA adopted Transaid as its official charity in 2013. The association’s chief executive, Peter Ward, commented: “Transaid has done and continues to do an excellent job in building local skills and knowledge to make transport safer, cheaper, cleaner and more effective, ensuring better access to the essentials for everyday life across Africa.”
