Jon Goodman commenting on the donation: "BEN does fantastic work to look after people from the automotive industry in times of need and, of course, getting around safely and comfortably is key to carers and residents. Peugeot has long been a supporter of the charity and I�m delighted we can help again this year."

BEN Chief Executive, David Main, commenting after receiving the keys to the Peugeot 5008: "This may be the motor industry but we are a charity and rely on the support of organisations and individuals to maintain our levels of care. We are extremely grateful to Peugeot for once more coming to our aid with the fabulous 5008. It's certainly right up there with the best in its class and it will undoubtedly go a long way to improving the lives of our residents and carers."
