Automotive charity, Ben, says that its 10-day virtual active challenge, Breakout for Ben, has so far raised just under £159,000, that will help address its £1million fundraising shortfall.
Ben invited the whole industry to Breakout for Ben in February and a total of 986 people took part. They walked, ran, cycled, and exercised their way to complete over 80,000 miles collectively to raise much-needed funds for the charity. Teams embarked on a virtual journey visiting motor circuits across the UK.
With the Breakout total included, just under £737,000 has now been raised to help address Ben’s £1million fundraising shortfall following its rallying cry last year asking for urgent support.
All funds raised will help Ben support automotive industry people with their mental health, physical health, and
wellbeing. Fundraising like this is vital and means that Ben can be there to help those in crisis and provide support with stress, anxiety, depression, money worries, or anything else.
