Inchcape's Donation to Ben


Like all other retailers across the country, Inchcape UK have recognised the difficulties everyone has faced throughout 2020. 

In a pledge to support the health and wellbeing of their colleagues, and others in the automotive industry, Inchcape UK have donated £10,000 to automotive industry charity, Ben. 
 

James Brearley, CEO of Inchcape UK, said: ‘As a leader I knew I had to support our colleagues both at work and in their personal lives during this pandemic. We did everything we could to make sure everyone felt supported, and Ben have helped us with this. I can’t commend the work that Ben does enough. 

‘The services that Ben offer are phenomenal and I know so many of our colleagues in the industry would agree that the help they received from Ben has made living with the pandemic that bit easier.

‘This gesture from Inchcape will hopefully help to keep Ben running and supporting as many people in the automotive industry as they can. And I really look forward to working with the team there in 2021.’
 

Matt Wigginton, Fundraising Director at Ben, said: “We can’t thank Inchcape UK enough for this very generous donation. With our incredible industry behind us, we have now reached over £0.5m following our urgent rallying cry for support in November last year. Right now, automotive people are struggling more than ever. That’s why support like this is vital so that no-one in automotive faces life’s toughest challenges alone. We couldn’t do what we do without this incredible support, thank you.”
