Click Dealer has signed up to take part in the 2018 Hats On 4 Ben charity fundraising event, which will take place on World Mental Health Day. The Clickers have been invited to show up on Wednesday 10th October flaunting their favourite hats.
What is Ben?
Charity organisation, Ben, is open from 8am until 8pm, offering free and confidential support to people who have worked or are currently working within the automotive industry and are experiencing difficulties. Offering tailored, holistic support, Ben focuses on the four main pillars of a person’s well-being and health: physical, mental, financial and social.
Ben understands that, from time to time, your problems may try to get the better of you and it may be hard for you to find your feet during a tough time. Mental health issues typically impact the life of 1 in 4 individuals every year, and while you may never need Ben’s free and confidential support, a colleague, friend or relative might.
Hats On 4 Ben is an annual charity fundraiser for people working within the automotive industry to show their support for colleagues, friends and relatives who have previously suffered or are currently suffering with mental health problems. Every year, companies put on their weird and wonderful hats and make a donation, which will go towards the funding of counselling, therapies and care services provided by the charity.
Why is Click Dealer Supporting Ben?
Click Dealer has always advocated the importance of mental health and general well-being. Although the Clickers are a close-knit team, full of bright and bubbly characters, it’s important for us to keep in mind that we are all human and we all face challenges underneath the surface.
Click Dealer Director, Pippa Rawlinson, said: ‘’We’re so proud to be supporting the Hatson4Ben campaign. Mental health awareness is really important to us at Click Dealer and we are fully behind the incredible work that Ben does for the automotive industry in this field.
“I’m sure The Clickers will be sporting all manner of wacky hats on October 10th and I for one can’t wait!’’
On Wednesday 10th October, team Click will dress to impress in their favourite hats, letting their fellow colleagues know that even if they feel as though the world is against them, they never have to face their problems alone.
How You Can Show Your Support
You can show your support by putting on your own hat and making a small donation to Ben. Every £2 donated on World Mental Health Day through Hats On 4 Ben will contribute to the provision of help and support for you and your fellow automotive colleagues and family dependents.
