Gifts in kind

Fundraising and making cash donations are not the only ways to support Ben. Some companies choose to provide gifts in kind, which can give us equipment and services we wouldn’t be able to access otherwise. These generous gifts range from business vehicles, office equipment and stationery to training, recruitment solutions, IT services and project management. If you have vehicles, equipment or a service you’d like to donate to Ben, please do get in touch.
