Stuart James, IGA Chief Executive comments: “It has been a very difficult year for independent garages, and Ben has provided outstanding support to more people within our industry than ever before, while facing fewer fundraising opportunities throughout the ongoing pandemic.

“With the IGA having to cancel a large number of events this year we have decided to donate the resulting surplus to Ben as thank you from the members of the association. We urge other organisations to donate so Ben can continue to offer the free, life-changing support for anyone in our industry during these difficult times.”

Ben has raised almost half a million pounds in the appeal so far, although this is well below what it would usually raise during the dinner and conference season.
