Our charity is dedicated to transforming the lives of the millions of people affected by neurological conditions. The £100,000 raised will help us to continue funding pioneering research, innovative treatments, and world-class facilities at Queen Square. We would like to extend our thanks to everyone involved in helping to raise this fantastic amount.”
Lord Choudrey added: “We are absolutely delighted to support the work of The National Brain Appeal charity for the second time as it’s a charity that is very close to our hearts. Charity is at the core of what we do here at Bestway – we are extremely dedicated to our social responsibility and incredibly committed to giving back to the communities within which we operate.”
