British High Commission Changes Lives

| April 27, 2015

President Lt Gen. Seretse Khama Ian Khama has commended the British High Commission for helping underprivileged people in Botswana.

Speaking during the second Duke of Edinburgh Golf Challenge Charity Day dinner in Gaborone on April 24, the President said he was happy that proceeds from the event would benefit many disaantaged people.

He said what British High Commission has done through its charity event must be appreciated. British High Commissioner Nick Pyle, in his programme notes, explained that their golf challenge charity event was established last year and has raised over P500 000 for several local charities.

“Several local charities throughout Botswana have already benefitted and without doubt lives have been improved. It is about helping those who are less fortunate than us,” Mr Pyle said.

Amongst others, he said they have supported the Diabetes Association of Botswana, Jwaneng Street Children Project, and the Neonatal Unit at Princess Marina Hospital, the Cheshire Foundation of Botswana, Teenage Mothers Project and the Football Skills Youth Development.

Mr Pyle thanked President Khama for gracing the golf challenge charity day dinner, where prizes were awarded to individuals and teams that won the fund-raising golf tournament played earlier. Winners of the golf challenge were set to play at the world finals in London.
