Stanbic Bank Botswana and Nomads, a local charity organization, joined hands last week as they hosted the Nomads Charity Golf Day.
Sponsored by Stanbic Bank, the golfing event was held on 26th September 2013 at Gaborone Golf Club, with the aim of raising funds to be channeled towards a charitable cause.
Over 128 golfers participated in the event, comprising of both members of Nomads, golfers and Stanbic Bank staff.
Proceeds from the project which is an initiative pioneered by the Bank’s Secured Lending department, are expected to benefit St Peter’s Day Care Centre.
“We at Stanbic Bank believe in and appreciate the Nomads culture and values and, as such, are pleased to be able to join forces with them for this wonderful initiative.
The Nomads Charity Golf Day offers the perfect platform for strengthening business relationships, enjoying a day out on the course, and raising money for a charity that the Bank supports.
I for one was happy to tee off for a good cause!” said Stanbic Bank Head of Secured lending, Christo De Wet.
Nomads is members only charity organisation consisting of 140 golf playing members and many of them are expected to participate in the event.
Proceeds from the golf day will go towards further support of the 120 children enrolled at St Peter’s.
St Peter’s Day Care Centre falls under the Diocese of Botswana (Anglican Province of Central Africa) and aims to promote an environment in which orphans and other vulnerable children are cared for, given age appropriate education, supported and protected.
“Between the business fraternity championed by Nomads and the strong support and reputation of private sector organisations such as Stanbic Bank, we are very pleased that the Nomads Charity Golf Day proved to be a highly successful fundraising event for a truly heart-warming cause.
We have looked forward to this event a great deal and a now look forward to a strong working relationship well into the future with Stanbic Bank in bettering the lives of our communities,” said Nomads member and organiser of the event, Barry Malan,
