From 5th-9th October, the InAutomotive team will be attempting to travel 1500 miles across Europe in a car worth no more than £750.00 to raise money for automotive charity, Ben Support for Life.
Bangers4Ben is a 4 day event by Car Dealer Magazine and motor industry charity BEN, where participants have to travel to Italy in a banger worth no more than £750.00. Once back in the UK, the cars are sold at auction with all the proceeds being donated to Ben.
Ben Support for Life is a not-for-profit organisation that partners with the automotive industry to provide support for life to its people & their families.
Ben provides a range of services, covering a person’s core well-being from financial and social support to physical and mental well-being and provides this care to anyone related to the industry and that falls in need. In addition, Ben’s services also extend right through to that person’s immediate family ensuring far reaching support.
This will be a very challenging but no doubt entertaining event for InAutomotive’s representatives Thomas Lowcock and Shuhel Miah, who are eagerly awaiting the challenge. Thomas and Shuhel will be keeping us updated daily on their progress and experience, throughout the competition. We’ll be seeing plenty of pictures, video diaries and more from the event itself throughout its course, and we’ll be looking to you to help us reach our goal of raising £2,000!
When they get back to the UK, the car will be sold at auction with all of the proceeds being donated to Ben Support For Life. But exactly what car is it that they will be using for the challenge? Over the past week, we have asked you to guess, giving just a few clues (left). We’re almost ready to announce the car we’ll be sporting…so watch out for the big reveal on our social media channels!
So, if you’re working in the automotive industry and would like to back us for this excellent cause, all you have to do is head over to our donation page, and please, only give what you can!
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank you in advance for your help and support before, during and after this event and we’re really looking forward to promoting such a fantastic cause. Oh, and don’t forget to wish Tom and Shuhel luck on our JustGiving page – we’re sure they’ll need it!
