Join us on our fundraising tour for the 10th anniversary of Bangers4Ben!

28 September 2018

Fundraising has begun for Bangers4Ben 2018, an event where the IGA will be among 50 teams driving around Europe in a car worth less than £750 to raise money for automotive charity, BEN.

Our intrepid team will be cruising through Europe in a Mercedes 200 SLK Kompressor, kindly donated to us by Tom of Poplar Motors in York.

The teams will be heading to a mystery location to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Bangers4Ben, so to join in the fun and find out our car’s theme follow our Twitter page below:

Frank Harvey, one half of our brand new dynamic driving duo, says “It’s the first year for both myself and Paul Darwell so you could say we are Banger virgins, but we are both looking forward to it. With over 2000 miles to cover in four days, plus the surprise final challenge when we get back to the UK, it’s all feeling pretty exciting and it’s for a great cause to boot.”

We have been challenged to raise £2000 for Ben this year. All donations, large and small, will be gratefully received. if you’d like to donate you can do so at our Just Giving page here: www.justgiving.com/fundraising/iga-b4b18.
