Special Persons Association of Nigeria
Chellarams is committed to adding value to the communities where we do business specifically by supporting the Special Persons Association of Nigeria. We have donated over 250 customised handicapped tricycles to the association to create and promote the culture of cycling in Nigeria. We also support the association with yearly financial donations and provide scholarships to outstanding students who are members of the association.
Sponsorship of “Mr. Flex Nigeria” Championship
Chellarams’ commitment to promoting healthy living amongst Nigerians is one of the key drivers of our sponsorship of the annual Mr. Flex Nigeria competition. The body building championship (Mr. Flex Nigeria) is a platform through which Nigerian bodybuilders are prepared for participation in the International Bodybuilding championships. We also sign deserving winners of the competition as brand ambassadors for our Real Milk brand and they also win a Power-Bike.
Sponsorship of YMedia Park n Ride
We are proud to be associated with the annual Ymedia Park n Ride project, a two-hours 10km bicycle roundtrip ride within Lagos State metropolitan estates. The primary goal of the project is to promote and support alternative transportation, healthy living and an environmentally friendly future. Kids that participate in the event are rewarded with bicycles as gifts to carry on the culture of cycling and exercising.
Other initiatives that have benefitted from our support over the years include: “Seeing is believing” – a Standard Chartered Bank initiative to tackle avoidable blindness in communities in Nigeria; Walk for Standard in collaboration with the Standard Organisation of Nigeria (SON); Ymedia Go-Green Initiative; Monetary donation towards Nigerian Union of Journalism (NUJ) union week and scholarships for children of slain NUJ members.
