Earlier this year GForces took part in Bangers4BEN in association with CarDealer Magazine to raise money for the BEN motor charity. McCarthy Cars donated us two cars (bangers) which were coincidentally very close to our GForces colour blue. The Volvo V70 and BMW 528 held out for our two teams during the course of the entire journey. Despite the Volvo receiving a huge dent after our teams thought it would be a good idea to do some bonnet sliding and the BMW gaining some extra stickers, both cars made it to the auction house in one piece.
On November 2nd at Aston Barclay’s Chelmsford site our Volvo V70 sold for £650 and the BMW 528 sold for £600 raising a total of £1250 for the BEN Motor Charity.
Tallied up with all of the other participant’s cars, Bangers4BEN has so far raised £15,324.96 along with buyers’ fees of £1,624.96 to be added and individual teams sponsorship money.
Well done everyone, it will be tough to beat that next year!
