Garage scoops char­ity bike prize

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others -

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.
