Benathlon: Embrace the Challenge, Empower Lives

For the second time this year, Benathlon is set to kick off in September, inviting participants from all corners of the automotive community. This 30-day challenge involves dedicating 30 minutes each day to personal exercise while aiming to raise £30 for Ben. Participants have the freedom to choose their preferred mode of exercise, be it walking, cycling, running, swimming, horse riding, or even skipping! The diverse range of activities ensures inclusivity, allowing everyone to contribute to this remarkable endeavour.

The previous Benathlon event in March witnessed the participation of 130 individuals, and this September's event promises to surpass that number. The growing enthusiasm for Benathlon highlights the commitment of the automotive industry in improving the well-being of its members and supporting their colleagues in times of need. By engaging in this physically and mentally rewarding challenge, participants can experience personal growth while raising funds to help their fellow automotive professionals get back on track.

Ben's Big Breakfast: Connect, Support, and Inspire

Continuing its successful run, Ben's Big Breakfast returns for the third consecutive year from 9th to 15th October. This event encourages automotive industry companies to organise breakfast gatherings with the aim of fundraising for Ben. By bringing together employees, customers, and families, the breakfast provides a nurturing environment where individuals can connect with one another, share a meal, and support each other's mental health.

Last year, 158 companies actively participated in Ben's Big Breakfast, fostering a sense of unity and camaraderie within the automotive community. This year, Ben is optimistic about surpassing that number, making an even greater impact. By hosting a breakfast event, companies can demonstrate their commitment to employee well-being while contributing to the overarching goal of supporting those in the industry facing hardships.

Matt Wigginton, Director of Partnerships, Engagement & Income at Ben, expressed his anticipation for the upcoming events and urged the automotive community to get involved. Matt said, “We can’t wait to get cracking with our next fundraising events later this year and hope to see many of our automotive family take part in both!

“Demand for Ben’s support services has reached new highs due to the cost-of-living crisis, so without your support we can’t continue to support the increasing demand. Thank you - more people than ever need our support, yours will mean we can reach them all.”
