BKC Retail Ltd - A Charitable Organisation
BKC Retail Ltd is proud to have partnered up with “In The Ring Promotions” to help support and raise money for Save the Children UK. The Save the Children Fund, commonly known as Save the Children was established in the United Kingdom in 1919 to improve the lives of children through better education, health care, and economic opportunities, as well as providing emergency aid in natural disasters, war, and other conflicts.
The black-tie event dubbed as “Fight For The Kids” is due to be held in Batchwood Hall St Albans on 12th October 2019 and features one of our very own Directors, Baber Zaman who will be stepping in the ring and taking part…Good luck! An estimated £3000 has been raised so far for Save the Children but we are hoping to smash all targets!
Charity has been part of human culture for thousands of years. There are numerous instances of charitable acts in ancient civilizations dating back as far as 2500 BCE (or 4,500 years ago), which is around the time the Egyptians were building the pyramids.
More recently over the last 30 years or so, donations to charitable organisations have increased consistently year-over-year, far outpacing the rate of inflation. Today, charitable giving is a core value of western culture with over 95% of households donating to charity.
