The Autoglass® two-day Spirit of Belron® Challenge, held September 23-24 in the United Kingdom, raised more than €1 million ($1.1 million USD) for the charity Afrika Tikkun.
More than 300 Autoglass® participants joined the company’s 15th annual event at Dorney Lake, Windsor, including participants from 33 different countries.
Over the past 15 years Autoglass® parent, Belron®, has raised £6.4 million for Afrika Tikkun programs in the South African cities of Johannesburg and Cape Town, which go towards helping disadvantaged youths. The charity provides hot nutritious meals, medical care, and youth development programs for disadvantaged youths.
“Giving back is deeply engrained in our culture at Autoglass® and this event encapsulates so much of what is special about our people – the care, pride and passion for others that we put into all we do,” says Taxiarchis Konstantopoulos, managing director of Autoglass®.
