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 giving daily updates on their progress and experience throughout the competition. There will be plenty of pictures, video diaries and more from the event itself throughout its course, and InAutomotive are looking for help to reach their 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? InAutomotive are almost ready to announce the car …so watch out for the big reveal on their 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!
Don’t forget to wish Tom and Shuhel luck on our JustGiving page – we’re sure they’ll need it!
