LAYING A FIRM FOUNDATION FOR CHARITY VENTURE


The launch of a charity which will help disadvantaged young- sters in Bangladesh raised more than £12,000 in just one night. The Shampan Foundation was set up by The Shampan Group to encourage youngsters to take up sport, some- thing which, the founders say, can change the lives of young people. It will also work to improve education opportunities in Bangladesh and support those who have been excluded from society.


The launch party at the Shampan 4 restaurant near Biggin Hill was attended by Paul Elliott CBE, the ex-Chelsea foot- baller, and entertainment included live music, a dinner and a raffle. “The event was pretty successful,” said Abdul Malik, a trustee of the foundation. “This money will make a huge dif- ference – for instance to put one child through the education system in Bangladesh costs just £200 for a year.”


The foundation, which employs a full-time manager in Bangladesh to oversee the project, has already built a school in the Sylhet region and has plans to hold further fundraising events throughout the year.
