He will be running to raise money for BEN, the Motor and Allied Trades Benevolent Fund.
“Please take a moment to sponsor me for this worthwhile cause”, said Porteous.
“I have chosen BEN as the charity to support as I have worked within the motor industry for many years now and it has provided me with both income and an excellent career path with many exciting opportunities. "It is really easy to donate online by credit or debit card from my charity webpage www.justgiving.com/billporteous and all donations are secure and sent electronically directly to BEN. If you are a UK taxpayer, you can automatically reclaim 28% Gift Aid on your behalf, so your donation is worth even more.”
