On 10th November, staff at JCB wore their best hats to work to support BEN with their 'HatsOn4Ben' initiative. BEN is a charity supporting those who work in the automotive industry. Founded in 1905, the charity provides practical help, support, advice and friendship to more than 15,000 men and women and their families every year.The idea of HatsOn4Ben was simple, wear a hat for the day and pay £1 to raise crucial awareness around mental health. It is BEN's aim to open the door to more people suffering in silence and to reach more of those estimated 1 in 3 people who are affected to get the support they need. Every £1 donated will go back into providing relevant services for those who work in the industry and their families.
