Charity Ben launches the 2023 Ben Ball

The Ben Ball for 2023 has been announced by motor industry charity Ben, and tickets are now on sale.

The event, on December 6, is one of the automotive industry's pre-Christmas milestones and it raises funds for those with industry links who are struggling or in crisis.

This year the black tie event will be held at Old Billingsgate Market in London, offering an amazing night of celebration, awe-inspiring entertainment, networking opportunities and fantastic food.

In 2022 the Ben Ball quickly sold out, with more than 600 automotive industry figures attending and joining forces to raise more than £120,000 for the charity to use in supporting current and past motor industry workers and their families.

Sponsorship opportunities are also available.

Matt Wigginton, director of partnerships, engagement and income at Ben, said: “We hope you’ll join us at Ben Ball 2023 for a spectacular evening of celebration and entertainment. We expect it to be another sell-out event so advise booking now to avoid disappointment.

“With the cost-of-living crisis we’re living through, we’re supporting more and more people in our automotive family who are struggling to make ends meet.

"Ben Ball is a critical fundraising event for us – it brings in vital donations and gives us the chance to thank those who have helped us achieve so much during the year, as well as show how we use their donations to change lives.

“We invite everyone in the industry to book tickets and join us. We can’t wait to welcome you to Old Billingsgate Market again this December for the highlight of the automotive industry calendar.”

Ben is the charity dedicated to supporting the people of the automotive industry, providing support for life for them and their family dependents.

Ben supports individuals to navigate through life’s challenges, empowering them to make positive, lasting change. Ben works with people to improve their lives by enhancing their health and wellbeing through its free and confidential online self-help, helpline and support services. 

Ben also operates continuing care and support for those in later life, which isn’t dependent on an automotive industry connection, via its residential care centres, day centre and retirement village
