Lex Autolease donates Citroen C4 to BEN automotive charity

Lex Autolease has donated a new Citroen C4 Grand Picasso to automotive industry charity BEN.

The vehicle will be used to transport members from BEN’s workplace Day Care Centre in Coventry to hospital and medical appointments, and has been donated as part of Lex Autolease’s community plan and BEN’s work with the automotive community.

Lex Autolease has also donated a full service and maintenance package with the vehicle to eliminate ongoing running costs for the charity.

BEN runs five care centres around the country, including the Coventry Day Care centre offering a range of services from specialist dementia care, to residential nursing and end of life care for those who work, or have worked, in the automotive and related industries, as well as their independents.

Nigel Williams, head of business innovation at BEN said: “BEN is extremely grateful to Lex Autolease for the provision of this vehicle which will be used by our Day Care centre in Coventry.  The centre provides respite care facilities for people who have worked in the automotive industry. As a significant stakeholder in the automotive industry it’s fantastic to see Lex Autolease supporting the wider industry.”

Janice Cadden, sales director at Lex Autolease, said: “The full service and maintenance package removes some of the administrative burden and costs associated with running a vehicle, and the money saved here can benefit another part of the charity.”
