For the first time, NFDA will enter Bangers4Ben to raise money for BEN, the automotive charity which provides support for life to those working in the automotive industry and their families.

Tom and Gabi will be driving across Europe in a space-themed car worth no more than £750 which Marshall Motor Group helped us find. After the trip, the bangers will be sold at auctions with all the proceeds going to BEN. Last year, £59,000 was raised, but this year is Bangers4Ben's 10th anniversary and we all want to do better!

The challenge is to raise more than £2,000 from fundraising and the sale of the banger.

If you feel generous enough to donate £100, we would like to stick your company’s logo on our car and include you in all the social media promotions we will be doing during the trip.

Please email your logo in a vector outline format to
