10 years ago

IMG_0388BEN has thanked Car Dealer for its fundraising efforts – and congratulated the magazine on finally buying a Porsche 911.

The challenge, which saw the magazine trade up from £0 to a Porsche 911, came to its conclusion in last month’s issue, and has led BEN’s chief executive to thank the magazine and its team for its charitable work.

David Mann, BEN chief executive said: ‘The team at Car Dealer Magazine has, from the day they launched, championed the cause of BEN. They have set in motion so many crazy fundraisers that not only deliver much needed funds, but do it an a way that creates attention and improves awareness.


‘This, their latest endeavour has inspired many in our industry to get involved and spread the message. It has also generated income that will help to improve life for a number of automotive people.

‘Our thanks go to all those who have participated along the way and particularly to James and his team. We look forward to the next idea.’
