Telecoms provider, BCH Digital, is delighted to announce its T-shirt sponsorship for CARE International’s ‘CARE Challenge’ Series.

CARE International is one of the top three aid agencies in the world, focusing on long-term development projects to help some of the world’s poorest communities, as well as responding to emergencies. Through the 2011 CARE Challenge Series, a series of sponsored physical challenges, the organisation aims to raise over £800,000 for the charity’s essential work overseas, helping 82 million people in over 87 countries find a route out of poverty.

The sponsorship arrangement is the first of its kind for BCH, who are also providing CARE International with inbound and outbound call services via a reseller. BCH also hope to boost the charity’s funds further by competing in the New Media Challenge, covering the distance of a marathon by hiking, biking and canoeing, on 3rd September in Staffordshire! Funds raised will go towards long-term development projects to help some of the world’s poorest people in the world find a route out of poverty.

The most recent CARE challenge was the gruelling Scottish 3-Peaks Challenge, which saw oil and gas company, Anadarko, climbing three mountains in the Scotland: Ben Tee, Ben Ledi and Ben Cruachan, all in the target time of 24 hours.

So far, more than 1,600 companies and a total of over 16,000 participants have taken part in CARE International’s events.
