Jaguar Land Rover works with key corporate charities NSPCC and BEN in the UK.
BEN is the automotive industry's charity's BENevolent Fund, the only UK charity for those who work, or have worked in the automotive and related industries as well as their dependents. JaguarLand Rover is leading the 'BENergy' initiative which involves regular meetings with BEN and other car manufacturers to lead an ongoing and evolving plan to organise a constant stream of fundraising activities. These activities involve employees and the company as well as the general public. We also encourage retirees to become BEN volunteers and encourage employees and retirees who are experiencing financial issues to contact them for support.
JaguarLand Rover leads the Coventry NSPCC Business Group, which was set up in 1994. The group comprises of local influential business people and is led and chaired by Jaguar Land Rover executives. The Group has raised over £2 million to date and now also covers Warwickshire. JaguarLand Rover aims to generate £1 million for NSPCC by 2014 to support and raise awareness of the national campaign.
