Hats on 4 Ben is back

Ben, an independent charity and dedicated partner to the automotive industry, reveals the details of this year’s automotive industry mental health fundraiser!

The campaign looks a little different this year after a design refresh which more clearly shows that Ben is here for the automotive industry, providing support for life to its people. The new name – Hats on 4 Ben – more clearly reflects that the campaign is run by Ben, for Ben, and now takes place on World Mental Health Day. The aim is still the same – to raise money for Ben and help transform mental health support across the automotive industry.

How Hats on 4 Ben works:

  1. Sign up – Ben will send a fundraising pack and everything needed to make Hats on 4 Ben a success in your business. Click here to sign up on Ben’s website.
  2. Spread the word – promote the event across the business so everyone marks 10 October in their diary
  3. Donate – everyone taking part donates two pounds to Ben through JustGiving or by dropping their donation into a collection box.
  4. Get involved – appoint a couple of Hatters to get everyone wearing a hat on 10 October and donating to the Hats on 4 Ben campaign. Post hat selfies to social media on the day using #HatsOn4Ben.

In its third year, Ben hopes the campaign will be even bigger and better, raising more funds to support its work helping industry colleagues with issues like anxiety and depression.
