Automotive charity Ben has produced a short film to highlight its Christmas appeal, the funds from which will help it to provide essentail support for automotive families who are struggling this winter.
Ben’s new film aims to raise £300,000 throughout December and January and urges people to share the fim and donate if possible. Watch the short film here.
Over the last 12 months, Ben supported 231 households who couldn’t afford to put food on the table or heat their homes and an additional 103 households who would have otherwise become homeless. And, as part of last year’s Christmas families project, Ben supported 78 families who were struggling financially – a total of 118 adults and 99 children.
Ben is here for industry people this winter so if you work, or have worked, in the automotive industry we urge you to get in touch now if you’re at breaking point via its free and confidential helpline. Ben is already supporting many automotive families in the run up to Christmas. Don’t suffer in silence, contact the helpline: 08081 311 333 or use the webchat at www.ben.org.uk.
