Autoglass completes charity challenge

More than 300 people from Autoglass took part in a two-day challenge of endurance to raise money for developing communities in the country.

They joined more than 2,500 colleagues from 33 countries across the world for the company’s 15th annual Spirit of Belron charity event.

After a social day one, participants took part in a huge sporting festival at Dorney Lake on the second day, including a triathlon, duathlon, half marathon and fun run.

In total, the weekend raised over one million euros for Afrika Tikkun, making the event its most successful ever.

Over the past 15 years Autoglass parent, Belronhas raised £6.4m for Afrika Tikkun programmes 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 programmes for disadvantaged youths.
