UKWA has announced that it has adopted Transaid as its official charity. A number of money-generating initiatives are planned. For example, UKWA hopes to field teams in a number of upcoming Transaid fundraising events – including cycle rides from London to Amsterdam and, for the more adventurous, through the changing terrain of Uganda. Roger Williams, UKWA’s chief executive officer, commented: Transaid is the logistics industry’s charity and, as such, is perfect for UKWA. It has done and continues to do an excellent job in building local skills and knowledge to make transport safer, cheaper, cleaner and more effective, ensuring better access to the essentials for everyday life across the African continent.
