The Electric Charge started in May in Dublin and will finish in Eastbourne later in the year, taking in a grand total of 155 dealerships along the way where a wide range of fundraising activities will take place.

Andy provides an update on how the BEN Charity Industry Challenge is going and how you can make a donation to support this worthy cause.
