The 2016 UNICEF Charity Shield Polo Tournament is one of the prominent initiatives, sponsored by Access Bank to drive development in the communities it serves. The 2016 edition of the 2016 Access Bank-UNICEF Charity Shield Polo tournament was designed to raise more awareness on the plight of vulnerable children and orphans especially the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) scattered across northern Nigeria.
The tournament which was in two phases, started in Kaduna state and climaxed in Europe with the Access Bank Charity Shield Polo Day at the prestigious Guards Polo Club in London. The range of events which featured celebrities from different parts of the globe, proved to be yet another platform for supporting the less privilege in Northern Nigeria. Access Bank, in line with this year’s goal, donated N10,000,000 to UNICEF for the cause.
