Hats fantastic! Comline staff wear hats to work in support of BEN
Staff at award-winning parts supplier, Comline, quite literally donned their fundraising hats earlier this month by wearing hats to work in support of automotive charity BEN’s ‘Hats on 4 Mental Health Day’.
The Luton-based supplier of European, Japanese and Korean aftermarket parts lent its support to the not-for-profit organisation, with members of the team wearing a colourful mix of headwear to work on Thursday 10th November and donating money in the process.
The mental health campaign, the automotive charity’s first-ever national fundraising event, was launched in-line with World Mental Health Day.
BEN is taking a lead role in helping people within the automotive industry tackle mental health challenges and raise awareness. The day was designed to shine the spotlight on mental health issues and the impact such issues can have on any individual.
Thanks to social media, the campaign went viral, with the hashtag #Hatson4MentalHealth included in many Tweets sent by suppliers, industry bodies and distributors – Comline included.
Comline is a long-term supporter of BEN and, as recently as July, handed the not-for-profit-organisation a cheque for £1,000 during its presentation of The Queen’s Award for Enterprise: International Trade 2016.
Comline’s Marketing and Communications Manager, Leigh Davies, said: “BEN is a truly fantastic organisation, one that Comline has always been quick to support.
“BEN’s ‘Hats on 4 Mental Health Day’ is a superb cause, and I’m delighted the team here at Comline, along with many others from within the automotive industry, responded by donning their hats and donating money to this wonderful campaign.”
