Every donation we receive, large or small, helps us continue to support people in the automotive community who are going through life’s toughest challenges. Your generosity might help a family that is dealing with terminal illness, support a child experiencing mental health issues, help someone who is socially isolated to reconnect or help someone with money worries get back on track. Our support helps people make lasting, positive change and your donations will make a huge difference to their lives.

Payroll Giving is a tax efficient, easy way for you to support Ben. Each month you donate a regular amount that comes straight out of your salary on a tax-free basis. This means if you make a donation of £5 a month, it will only cost you £4, and if you’re a higher-rate tax payer it would only cost you £3. Large or small, Payroll Giving donations are vital to our work.
Ask your company about joining the scheme.
If you don’t have access to a Payroll Giving Scheme, please consider setting up a monthly donation by direct debit instead. If you Gift Aid your donation we can reclaim the tax from HMRC, boosting your generous gift to us. It won’t cost you any extra and we can claim an extra 25p for every £1 you give.
Leaving a gift in your will
Remembering Ben in your will will help us make a lasting, positive difference to someone’s life. Large or small, all such charitable donations help us to continue our work supporting automotive colleagues and their families.
