Leicester Audi 'E' Peaks Challenge
About the group
A team of colleagues from Leicester Audi taking on the National Three Peaks Challenge!
What is The Leicester Audi ‘E’ Peaks Challenge?
Instead of using a standard fuelled car to drive from one peak to the next, we're using only all electric Audi vehicles.
With our transport only being an all-electric car it presents us with a unique aspect to our challenge in that we have had to carefully plan our route to include charge points, efficient timing of charges and maintain good range on the cars.
This added aspect will allow us to showcase Audi’s all-electric vehicle capabilities while being mindful of our carbon footprint and raising money for charity at the same time.
What is Our Aim?
To raise as much money as we can for charity in an eco-friendly way and to have some fun – well, as much fun that can be had climbing 3 mountains in 24hours! As well as raising money for Ben, our team will also raise sponsorship money for their own preferred charities.
The team will consist of 9 'walkers' that will take on the peaks and 4 dedicated drivers including a support car.
Fundraising for Ben - Support for life for automotive industry people
Ben is the charity dedicated to supporting the people of the automotive industry, providing support for life for them and their family dependents.
Ben supports individuals to navigate through life’s challenges, empowering them to make positive, lasting change. Ben works with people to improve their lives by enhancing their health and wellbeing through its free and confidential online self-help, helpline and support services.
Ben provides life-changing support to those facing crisis as well as helping them prevent crisis. Ben’s support empowers people to be more in control of managing their health and wellbeing to help them live well, think well, feel well and work well. Ben’s support is tailored and relevant to the needs of the individual, based on a wide range of support options and addressing every aspect of a person’s life.
Ben also operates flexible, continuing care and support for those in later life, which is not dependent on an automotive industry connection. This includes excellent nursing, residential, dementia and respite care via its care centres in Ascot, Rugby and Norham (Berwick-upon-Tweed) and day centre in Coventry and ‘independent living made easy for the over 65s’ at its retirement village in Sunninghill, near Ascot, Berkshire.
