As part of Copart Cares CSR commitment to caring about communities and good causes, the company is proud to join other key members of the automotive industry in supporting Ben Automotive Charity’s Christmas Appeal.
Copart has been a proud advocate of Ben for many years, having adopted them as its company charity in 2015. Copart said it is ‘very fortunate to have access to Ben’s wide range of health and wellbeing support services, so always keen to give something back.‘
With many of Ben’s fundraising events having been cancelled this year, they have asked businesses to pledge their support with a Christmas Appeal that aims to raise £500,000. Funds raised through the appeal will help Ben to support the growing number of people calling on its services this year.
Ben’s range of support services to the automotive community – including managing mental health issues and financial worries – are more important now than ever.
Christmas can be a stressful time, and anxiety, loneliness, and money problems will come to the forefront for many, coupled with the ongoing challenges of the pandemic. Ben has reported a significant increase in the number of calls for support over the past few months.
Copart is determined to continue its support and are proud to have joined other key members of the automotive industry in answering Ben’s rallying cry for help.
Copart has pledged its support with a Christmas donation, which will help enable Ben to continue providing their vital mental health, physical health, and wellbeing services.
Jane Pocock, Managing Director of Copart UK & Ireland commented:
“Christmas can be a difficult time for people struggling with their mental health or money worries, so at this time of year, the services of Ben are more important than ever. It’s been a challenging year for charitable organisations, so donations are vital to meet the growing demand for support services within the automotive community. Copart has been extremely fortunate to receive outstanding assistance from Ben over the years, we’re delighted to make a donation to their Christmas Appeal, and we urge others within the industry to step forward and pledge their support.”
