Close Finance Sponsors Trustford 'Breakout for Ben' Driving Charity Challenge

Close Finance (CI) is proud to be sponsoring TrustFord as they launch their ‘Breakout for Ben’ long distance driving charity challenge. 


TrustFord have chosen to support the charity Ben who provides free and confidential advice to anyone who works, or has worked for the automotive industry.


The Jersey team that Close Finance are sponsoring, made up of Ricky (Sales Admin), Connor(Parts Advisor), & Humberto (Hertz Supervisor), have named themselves ‘Beans Around TheWorld’ and will be setting off for the challenge starting point in Stratford Upon Avon next month. 


It will see the members of their team racing against teams from other TrustFord dealerships across the UK to see who can travel the furthest in 25 hours in their fully-fuelled All-New Ford Focus which will feature Close Finance sponsorship artwork on the bonnet. 


With just £400 to spend on fuel, food and accommodation during the 25 hour period, Sales Admin Ricky said, “when we were told we’d have a £400 allowance it actually sounded as if it would be easy making it last 25 hours, but after looking at the route we plan to take, tolls roads soon add up! Thankfully we should be able to make it to our planned destination on two or three tanks of fuel because the new Ford Focus is very economical and has a goodMPG.”


The Breakout for Ben charity challenge begins on the 6th of December with the JerseyTrustFord team arriving back in the Island on the 8th of December.
