Nigel Williams, Head of Business Innovation at BEN, said: "The vehicle from Suzuki helps us to minimise the costs of running the charity and ensures we are able to support people who approach us for help, I would like to thank them for their generosity and continuing support."

Charles O'Shea, Director, Finance & Corporate Operations at Suzuki, who arranged the car and handed the keys to Nigel, commented: “The handover of the new Celerio helps reinforce our long term support of BEN, we are sure that the car will be put to very good use in the invaluable work you do for our industry around the UK. The Celerio is one of the most fuel efficient City cars on the market which will certainly help give the charity a good message from an environmental point of view. We hope you enjoy driving your new Celerio.”
