Garage scoops charity bike prize
Ashford garage D&D Autos has donated a whopping £11,000 to an automobile charity — while winning a glitzy Suzuki motorcycle in the process.
The family-owned business walked away with the GSX-R600 bike after attending the annual ball and auction of BEN, the Motor & Allied Trades Benevolent Fund.
Director Matthew Pestridge said: “As a garage we have long been aware of BEN, but this is definitely our biggest involvement with the charity to date.
“Having seen the great work the charity does, I decided to get involved and support what is a very worthy cause.”
BEN helps those who work, or have worked, in the automobile industry and their dependants. The annual ball takes place at London’s Grosvenor House hotel.
