The MOT Club donates £200 to TrustFord’s Charity Efforts. The MOT Club is proud to be supporting TrustFord’s “Breakout for BEN”,  the charity dedicated to supporting the people of the automotive industry, providing support for life for them and their family dependents.

For many years TrustFord has partnered with the automotive charity Ben (ben.org.uk). This small but amazing organisation has, for over 100 years, helped and supported those in the automotive industry at times of financial and emotional needs – and in 2021 the need of their support is greater than ever.

This year the Breakout for Ben fundraising initiative goes industry wide in a bid to help Ben plug a £1 million fundraising gap in 2021!

Breakout for Ben will run from 5th-14th February with socially distanced teams of up to 10 covering 1,722miles by getting ACTIVE!!

Tracked on a special app, we are asking participants to run, walk, jog, cycle, swim, wheelchair to see how many miles they can clock up, while raising funds for Ben.

TrustFord would be delighted if you could sponsor our Castleford / Aftersales teams aka Kitto’s Chunky Crusaders, as we set off on this adventure on 5th February 2021.

In what has been a difficult year for everyone, the Group hope to raise as many funds as possible for this remarkable charity.

About BEN

Ben supports individuals to navigate through life’s challenges, empowering them to make positive, lasting change. Ben works with people to improve their lives by enhancing their health and wellbeing through its free and confidential online self-help, helpline and support services.

Ben provides life-changing support to those facing crisis as well as helping them prevent crisis. Ben’s support empowers people to be more in control of managing their health and wellbeing to help them live well, think well, feel well and work well. Ben’s support is tailored and relevant to the needs of the individual, based on a wide range of support options and addressing every aspect of a person’s life.

Ben also operates flexible, continuing care and support for those in later life, which is not dependent on an automotive industry connection. This includes excellent nursing, residential, dementia and respite care via its care centres in Ascot, Rugby and Norham (Berwick-upon-Tweed) and day centre in Coventry and ‘independent living made easy for the over 65s’ at its retirement village in Sunninghill, near Ascot, Berkshire.
