Gerard Barclay, BEN’s chief executive, met with BCA’s CEO Jon Olsen to thank the BCA team for their efforts and invaluable support.
BCA launched the campaign during national BEN Week in July and donated £1 for every car sold through the nationwide network of centres during the week. Locally, BCA also auctioned special items for sale. Major customer Lex also donated a £1 a car during the week and raised £1,598 from sales held around BCA’s network.
Barclay said: “We are exceptionally grateful that BCA has conducted this fundraising initiative and delighted with the results.
“This was a very effective and targeted campaign by BCA that encouraged all their UK centres, customers, staff and suppliers to support Ben. Not only did the Bid & Ben Campaign raise significant funds for BEN but it was extremely successful in helping raise BEN’s profile to a wider audience.”
