BEN bowled over

The annual BEN cricket match, co-sponsored by FPS and Comma and supported by the IAAF, raised over £5,500 for the automotive charity.

Wendy Williamson, IAAF chief executive, said, ‘As a leading supporter of automotive charity, BEN, we are extremely pleased by the high number of aftermarket individuals who got involved in this year’s annual cricket match.

‘As always, we encourage contributions, no matter how small or large to this worthy cause and would like to thank everyone who helped to organise the event, as well as the team members for their enthusiasm and participation. The match provided the industry with the opportunity to come together and take a well-deserved break from the day-to-day routine. It was a thoroughly enjoyable day and we look forward to our next charity event in aid of BEN.’
