Customers shopping in LKQ Euro Car Parts branches have collectively donated more than £10,000 to automotive industry charity, Ben, by adding £0.25 to their total when they check out.
In the first four months since going live across the 280-strong branch network, more than 40,000 individual donations of £0.25 have been collected at the tills.
LKQ Euro Car Parts’ chosen cause is its longstanding charity partner, Ben, which provides support for those working in the automotive industry and their families when they need it most.
Andy Hamilton, CEO of LKQ Euro Car Parts, said: “The amount our customers have donated so far has surpassed expectations, and we look forward to seeing what can be achieved in the future.”
LKQ Euro Car Parts’ ongoing fundraising efforts will see Andy Hamilton joined by Trade SMR Director Anthony McAteer to climb Mount Kilimanjaro next October, in Ben’s biggest ever Industry Leader Challenge.
The ambition for the business is to raise more than £50,000 in total, combining the donations collected within branches and additional funds raised through sponsorship.
