All aboard the new BenBus to raise awareness of charity’s support p

The BenBus has already made its debut into the automotive community this month, visiting companies in Guildford with the UK Garage and Body Shop team. The Ben on the road team surprised various companies by turning up in the bus with food and drinks, encouraging employees to get together for a chat and some fun to brighten up Blue Monday, known as the most ‘depressing day of the year’. You can watch the video here.

Ben’s dedicated Ben on the road team is on a mission to increase awareness of Ben’s Health & Wellbeing services and support. The team will be out on the road in the new BenBus delivering on-site visits to automotive employers to ensure more people who work in the automotive industry know Ben is here for them and their family dependents.

The charity is now also offering automotive industry companies the opportunity to ‘back the BenBus’ by sponsoring the vehicle. In return, the Ben team will join up with yours, visit your customers and feature your branding on the vehicle for one year. If you would like a visit from the team in the new BenBus or to find out more about sponsorship, visit www.ben.org.uk/BOTR.

Ellen Plumer, Head of Marketing and Outreach at Ben, said:

“We’re delighted to be unveiling our new BenBus which will raise further awareness about the vital services we provide for our automotive family. Visibility is hugely important as our team is on the road all year-round visiting companies to spread the word about Ben and see those who need to hear about their industry charity. Knowing about Ben can make all the difference. If you would like to book a visit or discuss backing our BenBus, visit www.ben.org.uk/BOTR, and if you see the bus out the road, give us a honk!”

Don’t suffer in silence, contact our helpline: 08081 311 333 or use our webchat at www.ben.org.uk. You can also access Ben’s out of hours text support line by texting BEN to 85258.
