£100 Campaign For BEN’s Centenary
National BEN Week raised over £18,000 for our less fortunate colleagues last year, thanks to the ‘£99 for 99 years’ campaign that the charity adopted. Hundreds of industry members took part by holding their own fundraising activities ranging from raffles and dress down days to cycle rides and other sponsored events. This year, to celebrate a century of care and support for the automotive and related industries, BEN will be bringing back the campaign but re branding it as ‘£100 for 100 years’ for National BEN Week, which runs from 18-24th July (inclusive of BEN’s actual birthday, 19th July).
BEN wants even more industry members to get behind the campaign this year and raise a minimum of £100, either by holding a fundraising event or simply by sending in a donation, so that we can reach our target of £100,000 for BEN’s 100th birthday. However, as fundraising can be quite daunting, BEN has put together a fundraising pack, a comprehensive guide to planning and putting on events, sponsored activities and other fundraisers. Included in the pack are items such as the A-Z of fundraising, which is full of interesting ways to raise money, legal information and even posters and press release templates.
