Ben has announced the launch of its first ever Big Breakfast fundraiser in October, which will run for a week from 4 October and end on World Mental Health Day on 10 October.
Ben will be encouraging automotive people to set themselves up with the most important meal of the day and get together with others over a cuppa and breakfast butty. As World Mental Health Day is the finale of the week-long event, the focus will also be on opening up, talking about mental health, connecting with others and sharing experiences.
Host a breakfast any day during that week and bring, bake, make and sell breakfast to raise money to support Ben’s work in the industry. Those hosting Ben’s Big Breakfast can also raffle a Ben bear to fundraise.
The charity will be asking individuals and companies in the industry to host colleagues, family, friends and customers for Ben’s Big Breakfast, to support those in need.
Matt Wigginton, Director of Partnerships, Engagement & Income, said: “We’re very eggcited about our new fundraiser – Ben’s Big Breakfast. It really is an eggcellent way to fundraise and support your automotive industry family. It’s also the perfect opportunity to boost mental wellbeing by chatting to friends, colleagues, family and customers over a cuppa.
“So we hope you’ll join us for a butty and a brew in October to raise much needed funds for Ben, because, when any member of our automotive family is in crisis, we all rally to support them. We propose a toast to everyone who hosts Ben’s Big Breakfast – thank you for your support!”
