So far, a number of companies across the industry including TrustFord, Arnold Clark, Auto Trader, Motorvise, Marshall Motor Group, CDK, MC Group Ltd, Hills Ford and Chorley Motor Group have answered Ben’s rallying cry and pledged their support.

Companies are being creative with ideas such as donating this year’s Christmas party funds, ‘Charity of the month’ schemes and donations linked to survey responses or sales / profit. Automotive companies are pledging to do three things for Ben:

  1. Be an advocate for Ben, ensuring the message of support is promoted widely within their business so everyone knows they are never alone
  2. Encourage colleagues to support Ben through Payroll Giving, Ben’s Lucky Lotto and its fundraising products and events
  3. Dig even deeper as a business to help address the £1m shortfall.
