Zanaco donates $15,000 to Zambia Sugar Open Golf Tournament Lusaka Golf Club

Zambia National Commercial Bank Plc (Zanaco) today, made a donation of $15,000 to the organising committee of the Zambia Sugar Open Golf Tournament. This is with the objective to give back to communities in which we serve and to enhance brand visibility. Part of the sponsorship will be channelled towards the support of the Junior Golf Clubs around the country where children are not only taught about golf but are educated in other aspects of life critical to good health and good upbringing. This aligns very well with the Bank’s  Corporate Social Responsibility Programme whose programmes include but are not  limited to supporting the Health and Education sectors.

Speaking after he presented a US$15,000 cheque to Zambia Sugar Open Local Organising Committee Chairman, Mr. Roy Penny, Managing Director and CEO Mr. Henk Mulder mentioned that the Bank is happy to be associated with the growth of golf in Zambia and with Zambia’s prestigious tournament. He also added that the sport of golf is popular in Zambia and among young people. He further mentioned that supporting the sport will help uplift the communities in which we serve. ‘’We recognise that uplifting the lives of people in communities in which we serve is not entirely Government’s responsibility alone but that we as a responsible business are supposed to do our part in improving the quality of communities in which we conduct business,’’ he said.

Receiving the donation, Mr. Penny thanked Zanaco for the gesture stating that the organizing committee members were appreciative of the sponsorship as it will help make the event a success. ‘’I am very confident we are going to host a very successful tournament this year,’’ he said.
