BEN relies solely on the generosity of the industry and its employees to enable it to provide the help and support to those in need.
One vital ingredient of this support is the supply of free loan cars to BEN's team of managers, fundraisers and welfare officers. Marshall Motor Group, one of the UK's largest motor retailers has extended its current support of BEN to include the supply of a Nissan Juke for the next 3 years to Kerry Whitaker, BEN's Regional Development Manager for London and East Anglia."This is a fantastic gesture, we are so grateful to Marshall Motor Group for consistently supporting BEN in so many different ways, and this additional contribution is very timely as we have an even greater need for replacement loan cars than normal. I am really looking forward to driving this great car which will help promote BEN across my region, and I hope this will inspire others to make a difference" said Kerry.
The picture shows the car being handed over to Kerry by Carole Burman, Marshall Motor Group's HR Director and Peter Martinez, General Manager of Marshall Nissan Cambridge.
"We are delighted to be able to support Kerry in this way", said Carole. "BEN helps thousands of automotive employees (past and present) every year. At Marshall, we are constantly looking for ways in which we can pledge our ongoing support to this worthwhile cause. The loan of the car and our decision recently to be an inaugural company to sign up to BEN Help (their employee assistance programme), demonstrates our absolute commitment to the welfare of our staff, as well our support to BEN as our industry charity."
