The BenBus hits the road to raise awareness of charity’s support

Automotive industry charity Ben, has taken its new VW Transporter on the road to increase the charity’s visibility and raise awareness of its life-changing support.

The BenBus has already visited automotive companies in Guildford with the UK Garage and Bodyshop team & encouraged employees to have a chat over food and drinks on Blue Monday – known as the most depressing day of the year. Watch the video here.

The dedicated team will continue to deliver onsite visits to automotive employers and is offering companies the opportunity to ‘back the BenBus’ by sponsoring the vehicle. In return, the Ben team will visit your customers and feature your branding on the vehicle for one year. Find out more at

Knowing about Ben can make all the difference. If you would like to book a visit or discuss backing our BenBus, visit, and if you see the bus out the road, give us a honk!”
