Autoparts Garage Equipment were delighted to welcome Sarah Hughes from BEN Automotive Industry Charity to Glasgow, when the team handed over £3,600 to the charity, raised through selling raffle tickets at their ‘A Night at the Carnival’ event earlier in the year.
The Night at the Carnival, from Autoparts UK and Autoparts Garage Equipment, involved garage visitors soaking up the full carnival-themed extravaganza, featuring live entertainment and free food, gaining exclusive access to show-only offers, discounts and a goodie bag.
Each raffle ticket bought was put into the prize draw to win a black Matco 4 series double bay toolbox, worth an impressive £5,000. The lucky winner of the raffle was John Ashcroft from Kilbowie Tyres, a tyre dealer situated in Clydebank, Scotland. As a result of the entries, Autoparts Garage Equipment were able to donate such an impressive figure to BEN.
Ben is an independent charity and dedicated partner to the automotive industry, providing support for life for automotive people and their family dependents.
John McArdle, general manager of Autoparts Garage Equipment, added: “Thank you to everyone who made a donation, we are very proud to donate to such a worthy cause.”
“The feedback we have received from garages and suppliers has been overwhelmingly positive and they have clearly benefited from the event. Everyone’s hard work and sterling effort have paid off – we’re extremely proud of what we have achieved.”
