New Holland joins forces with global children’s charity 
New Holland joins forces with global children’s charity
New Holland is amongst the many national and international donors who have contributed to the charity ARK (Absolute Return for Kids) to mark its tenth anniversary.

The tractor and agricultural machinery manufacturer donated one of its telescopic handlers for an auction to raise funds for ARK at the charity’s gala dinner in Kensington Palace Gardens – an event that was attended by their Royal Highnesses, the recently married, Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

In his speech to the 1000 gala dinner guests, the Duke announced a new partnership between ARK – a charity founded to transform the lives of children around the world with health and education programmes – and the Duke’s own Foundation which he began with his brother Prince Harry. He said he was very pleased that his Foundation and ARK were going to work together:

“Programmes from this partnership will raise aspirations, broaden horizons and encourage young people to achieve what may have seemed to them unachievable.”

The gala dinner raised an amazing £17.2 million for the programmes. Andrew Watson, New Holland’s UK Business Director said the funds would all go towards helping ARK and the Princes’ Foundation to continue with their invaluable work:

“So far ARK has transformed the lives of around 200,000 children around the world. At New Holland we are delighted to be able to be part of this and support them in the great work they do.”

ARK’s chairman, Ian Wace said the donations had been very generous:

“I am extremely grateful to our donors and to New Holland tractors. Their generosity will help us to take forward our vital work in Zambia, Zimbabwe, Romania and the UK. I thank themfor their support for ARK and look forward to working together in the years to come.”
