Ben launches Christmas Appeal

Published:  18 November, 2021

Ben has launched a new Christmas Appeal which aims to raise £500,000 so it can support the record numbers of people calling on its services this year, reflected in the 147% demand increase the charity saw during 2021.

Ben Chief Executive Zara Ross said: “While everyone continues to deal with the aftermath of Covid-19, it has been encouraging to see the positive bounce-back enjoyed by much of our industry this year. However, we know that many of our automotive family - the people our industry relies on – are struggling or in crisis as they continue to face life’s toughest challenges. The Christmas Appeal provides a tangible way that organisations can pledge their support and make a tangible difference.”

Ben received a £100,000 donation from dealer group Arnold Clark to help kick-start this year’s campaign. Group Managing Director Eddie Hawthorne, said “Ben has always supported our people at Arnold Clark, no matter what issues they have faced, and I am delighted to recognise that with a substantial donation to Ben’s Christmas campaign.”

Those wishing to contribute can pledge support by emailing To discuss further ways of supporting Ben, call Matt Wigginton, Director of Partnerships, Engagement & Income, on 07880 813051.
