The Retail Motor Industry Federation (RMI) has made a generous donation of £100,000 to BEN the automotive charity.

The donation will support the charity in enabling them to provide new furnishings and equipment for one of the houses in the new care centre in Ascot, Berkshire which is currently being built. The project is due for completion at the end of October 2014.

Alec Murray, RMI Chairman comments, “We are pleased to see that our donation is being used towards a positive and valuable cause in helping people from our industry, and hope to continue to work closely with BEN in the near future in supporting those in need of care”.

David Main Chief Executive at BEN comments, “We are extremely grateful to the RMI for their generous donation towards this exciting new project. We always welcome any support that will help make a difference to the lives of the BEN family”.
