Teddy Bear Picnic for National BEN Week

The Good Garage Scheme joined in celebrations with automotive industry charity, BEN, this week with the "Bear Us in Mind" campaign.

BEN is the UK’s dedicated charity for those who work, or have worked, in the automotive and related industries, as well as their dependants.

Whether it's practical, emotional or financial support that you need, BEN are there to help. They also provide day, nursing and residential care across the country for older people in our communities.

Staff at Good Garage Scheme's head office brought their beloved teddy bears to work for a  picnic on Thursday, 18th July and the weather was just right for it.

We had a bear-themed quiz, prizes for best bear and a raffle for BEN's new "Benjamin Bear". A great time was had by all and we wish BEN a Happy 108th Birthday.
