Go ‘Back 2 School’ for National BEN Week 2012
BEN, the automotive industry charity is celebrating its 107th birthday from 16-22 July 2012. The week-long celebration, National BEN Week, is just around the corner and there is still time to get involved.
National BEN Week has become a highlight of the industry’s calendar and this year, with the new theme ‘Back 2 School’, will be no exception. The ‘Back 2 School’ theme aims to encourage automotive companies to get their staff involved in having some fun whilst raising awareness and funds for BEN. The suggested target of £107, in recognition of BEN’s age, makes it accessible to everyone.
Kelly Neal, BEN’s Events Manager said “This year National BEN Week is set to be more successful and more fun than ever. BEN’s calendar is already full for the week and it looks as though many companies from the industry have done the same. There is still time for you to get involved and we encourage as many as possible to take part – after all the money goes to a great cause.”
