APT said it has raised £8000, or about $15,000, for charity over the past year.

The money will be used for Oxfam programs in Uganda and Sudan and will go towards setting up people with a means to supporting themselves and building their way out of poverty.

The company called its effort a “Great Charity Challenge,” which involved challenges including a “Fantasy Formula 1,” a sponsored bike event, a series of quizzes and a car wash. [One we wish we’d been in Belfast to watch was the “Great Leg Wax Challenge,” the exact nature of which is unclear. Details or photos of that unfortunately were not provided.]

APT officials presented the money to Oxfam Fundraising Executive Dearbhla McGrath in Belfast.

One beneficiary will be Oxfam’s Support a Woman in Business in Uganda, which involves giving women’s groups loans to set up their own businesses.

We felt that we should do our bit to help Oxfam with the important work they are doing around the world to help poor people build a better future for themselves," said APT Managing Director Noel McKenna.
