Automotive battery distributor Manbat has recently reached a milestone in its supply agreement to automotive industry charity, BEN.
Whenever a beneficiary requires the use of some form of battery-powered equipment to aid their daily mobility, or requires a new battery, Manbat will deliver a replacement and collect the failed battery, anywhere in the country and completely without charge.
Commenting on the on-going arrangement, BEN’s head of welfare, Yvonne Hignell said: “Before the agreement began in 2008, we were faced with an annual cost in excess of £2,000 to replace on average 20 batteries a year. However, as we approach the end of our seventh year, the total stands at 184 batteries, that’s an average of more than 25 each year, which has probably saved us £20,000.
“Without Manbat’s help and support, we would not be able to keep our client’s mobility vehicles in good working order and, together we have improved their quality of life and given them back their freedom. We look forward to many more years of working with Manbat.”
For Manbat marketing manager, Myles Pemberton, said: “BEN is close to our hearts and we are really pleased to hear that what we are doing is playing a part in making the lives of those in need just a little easier.“
