Story

I am challenging myself, my team of 11 and also the industry to get behind our own dedicated industry charity. Without the vital support from the industry Ben couldn’t continue to provide the much-needed services to our colleagues. It's easy to take our health for granted, this challenge will raise awareness of the importance of maintaining a good level of physical fitness - whatever our age! Ben is a vital lifeline and its sole purpose is to help improve the health and wellbeing of the automotive workforce, reducing absence, raising productivity and morale.

The English Channel is 21 miles wide and has taken anything between 7 and 27 hours to swim. It’s an incredibly demanding test of endurance and stamina, understandably it’s considered by many to be the ultimate long distance challenge. The team will have to contend with extreme conditions, cold water, tides, gusting winds and waves of over 2m. It’s not for the faint hearted, the channel is one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world, ferries and tankers take priority also, the team will also need to avoid other hazards such as the resident jellyfish population.
