The automotive community came together in a show of support at the Independent Garage Association (IGA) BIG Awards 2023, raising £10,000 for the automotive charity Ben to help the charity continue to provide vital support to the automotive sector.
Stuart James, IGA CEO, said: ”I want to extend my thanks to everyone who generously donated to Ben at the BIG Awards. Our sector is built on a foundation of helping one another, and this donation will help provide vital support to our fellow automotive workers and their families.
“As we continue to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic and in light of the current cost of living crisis, there has never been a more important time for our industry to unite to help those in need.”
Ben offers free support for life for anyone who works, or has worked, in the automotive industry, as well as their dependents. They can help with financial, emotional and mental health worries for those in the automotive sector facing challenges.
