Copart raises £5,000 for automotive charity Ben

Copart has raised £5,000 for Ben, the mental health charity for the automotive industry, through its 3 Peaks Challenge.

Over the course of one weekend in July, Team Copart tackled the three highest peaks in Scotland, England, and Wales – Ben Nevis (1,345m), Scafell Pike (978m) and Snowdon (1,085m).

Copart far exceeded its original £1,000 target with a final fundraising total of £5,000.

Jane Pocock, MD of Copart UK & Ireland, said: “I’m delighted that Copart was able to give something back to Ben, whose health and wellbeing services to our business and the wider automotive industry have been invaluable, especially during the challenges of the pandemic.

“Not only has this event been an incredible and unforgettable experience for our teammates who took part, but it also demonstrates the strength of our commitment to caring about good causes like Ben as part of our ongoing Copart Cares campaign.”
