Ben has announced the biggest ever ILC fundraiser for 2021! A group of up to 10 teams from well-known automotive businesses will take on ILC 2021: The Climb. Fundraising is running throughout 2021 with an ambitious group target of £300,000 - an ILC fundraising record!

An intrepid industry leader and a future leader from each company will climb one of the world’s most iconic peaks, Mount Kilimanjaro, in October this year over a period of 10 days. This challenge marks 10 years since Sarah Sillars OBE, the main inspiration behind ILC, took on Mount Kilimanjaro, raising an incredible £38,000 for Ben.

Three leaders from Ben will also be taking part in The Climb: Zara Ross, Ben’s Chief Executive, Matt Wigginton, Fundraising Director and Rachel Clift, Health & Wellbeing Director.

Our industry leader challengers will climb the highest free-standing mountain on earth, which is a total of 5,895 metres tall. They will battle through 90km of extreme trekking, freezing temperatures, high altitude, brutal ascents and severe weather. Tackling such a hostile environment will be physically demanding, mentally challenging, but will fundraise to provide life-changing support for automotive industry people who need it the most.

This challenge was chosen to represent that everyone has their own mountain to climb at some point in their life – no matter who they are, what they do or where they come from.
