Supporting Heroes: A Reflection on Our Partnership with the British Legion’s Askari Fund

Last year, as we celebrated our 30th anniversary, we took a moment to reflect on the journey that brought us to where we are today. During the festivities, we paused to acknowledge the invaluable contributions of organizations like the British Legion and the profound impact of their Askari Fund. It was with deep gratitude and admiration that we made a commitment to support their noble cause, aimed at providing assistance to surviving soldiers and their widows in Kenya.

As a testament to our ongoing commitment to the Askari Fund, we were honored to serve as the title sponsors for this year’s Askari Golf Day, held at the picturesque Karen Country Club on 2nd February. The event brought together golf enthusiasts and supporters of the Askari Fund for a day of camaraderie and philanthropy. With 50 teams participating, the event garnered significant traction, resulting in a successful fundraising effort to further support the vital work of the Askari Fund.

In addition to supporting the Askari Fund, we were happy to collaborate with Cigna and their stress kit initiative during the golf day. Recognizing the importance of mental health and wellbeing, Cigna offered golfers the opportunity to assess their stress levels and gain insights into potential areas of concern. This initiative underscored our holistic approach to supporting the physical, emotional, and psychological wellbeing of our community.

The Askari Golf Day concluded with a heartwarming gift presentation ceremony, where winners were celebrated for their achievements on the course. From a luxurious stay at the Mara to cherished memorabilia, the prizes served as tokens of appreciation for participants’ unwavering support of the Askari appeal.
