Thanks to everyone who got involved in our ‘Bike for Ben’ challenge at CDX in May, £2,000 has been donated to the automotive industry support charity by Click Dealer.
Click Dealer has joined the growing number of businesses within the automotive industry who have partnered with Ben to ensure our employees have access to any financial, mental, social and physical support they need. To show our gratitude for the organisation’s work, we hosted a challenge to raise money for Ben at this year’s CDX.
If you were at CDX on the 21st and 22nd of May, you may have visited Click Dealer’s stand. (The one with the white Tesla!) We asked the event’s attendees to pedal our stationary bike for 60 seconds each, to generate energy to power our Tesla across Europe!
Not only did everyone who took part have a chance to win a holiday, but we also promised to raise our donation to Ben as the power produced increased. Everyone who hopped on the bike helped to bring the total to a brilliant £2,000, so thank you to all who got involved!
Ben is a charity which helps anyone who works in the automotive industry. The non-profit organisation provides support for those experiencing physical, social, mental and financial difficulty, aiming to improve overall health and wellbeing.
Services offered by Ben include assessment, information, advice and guidance, managed referrals, therapy and funding for home adaptations or breaks for individuals and families dealing with illness. The money your pedalling has raised will help Ben continue to provide these invaluable services.
Click Dealer are also proud to be taking part in ‘Bangers4Ben’ in October. This is a competition run by Car Dealer Magazine, where entrants must purchase a car for less than £750 and travel around Europe in it. The cars will be sent to auction after the trip and the proceeds, along with any fundraising money will be donated to Ben.
