Kent Family Business Raises Over £1,000 For UK Charities

Autoquip have been garage equipment specialists since 1968, supplying garages and Motorsport teams, with links to Brands Hatch, the famous racing circuit in Kent. Since December 2021, the Autoquip team have raised over £1,160 for a number of charities across the UK.

Run as a third generation family business, the team’s fundraising efforts are traditional, yet fun, with casual Fridays giving staff the opportunity to wind down for the weekend and the swear jar injecting fun and healthy competition into the workplace.

The charities supported are wide ranging, including those who research treatments for serious illness, including mental health issues, and offer advice to those who are suffering.

Autoquip have made it possible to share their success and give back to those in need, by drawing on causes close to their team’s hearts. The inspiration to start fundraising came from a desire to support those who suffered the most during the 18 months of the pandemic.

As the country enters another period of uncertainty, Autoquip will continue to donate to charity, selecting new ones to align with the team’s wishes.

Ben Davis, Managing Director of Autoquip said: “We are delighted to have raised over £1,100 for eight different charities over the last few months, and we as a team enjoy the social element of taking part in activities together. We hope that our efforts have positively impacted people across the UK, and we look forward to sharing more good news very soon.”
