Global Continues Support for BEN at MotorTrader Awards 2013

The MotorTrader Awards 2013 saw the biggest and brightest names in the Motor Industry join together for a superb night at the Grosvenor House Hotel on Park Lane in London in celebration of a wide variety of achievements within the industry over the last year.

Global Insurance Management was, once again, proud to continue its high profile support of BEN, the UK’s dedicated charity for those who work, or have worked, within the automotive and related industries, as well as their dependants.

Topping the bill of the night after the industry awards was the Global sponsored BEN raffle, where a single donation to the charity would, by the end of the night, net one lucky participant tickets to the 2013 Italian Grand Prix, including travel and accommodation, leading to a spectacular £10,247.80 being raised for the charity in a single evening.

Global’s Director of UK Sales, Ben Lillywhite, drew the raffle on stage, and the glittering prize was won on the night by Mick Pilling of Remit.

Speaking of the BEN charity, Ben said: “BEN is our industry charity, and continues to provide practical, emotional and financial support to those currently working, or those having worked, within our industry. It is vital that their important work is recognised by the industry, and having the BEN raffle front and centre at the MotorTrader Awards dinner continues to ensure this. We are exceptionally proud that such a huge amount was raised on the night, and know this will be used to provide support to those within our industry who need it most.”

BEN was founded in 1905 by Arthur Wilson (1858-1945) - a leading advertising agent in the motor and cycle industries - to provide care and support for employees and their dependants in times of need. BEN offers financial, emotional and practical help and support to more than 15,000 men, women and children who have a connection with the automotive sector.
