Wherever you are in the UK there’s a Trust My Garage member nearby – in April we’ll prove it!

At Trust My Garage we’re incredibly proud of our ever-growing list of members, and our charity challenge in April gives us the perfect opportunity to show it off, as well as raising money for a great cause!

So, what exactly is the charity challenge? Well, we’re going to set up two Trust My Garage teams which, over the course of four days, will compete (in a friendly nature, of course) against each other, travelling around the country in order to visit the most TMG members in the UK. To add a bit of spice into the equation, the two teams will be fighting for geographical bragging rights, with the ‘Northern Numpties’ squaring up against the ‘Southern Softies’. After all, we all know there aren’t many other things that get the British public as excited as the old North v South rivalry!

The charity contest will kick off in Rugby, in the impartial Midlands, and the two teams will navigate their way around the UK using just the TMG website as a route planner. With over 2,000 members to choose from the teams will be spoiled for choice, but it’ll require military precision and logistical thinking from the winner as they try and visit as many garages as possible.

Each garage that gets visited will be asked to donate funds for leading automotive charity BEN. The charity has been helping those who have worked in the automotive industry, and their dependents, since 1905, providing invaluable financial, emotional and physical support.

What does this mean for you?

It means that wherever you are in the UK, there is an independent garage you can trust nearby – and we are going to prove it! We are so confident that you can quickly and easily find a local garage you can trust using just our website, we are going to do it ourselves! With over 2,000 Trust My Garage members throughout the country, you can find a local trusted garage whether you are lost in Luton, stranded in Swindon or AWOL in Accrington.

You can keep up-to-date with all the action by following the #TMGcharitychallenge hashtag on Twitter, with both teams posting real-time updates on their location, how they’re finding the challenge and of course, any problems they’re encountering…

Once the four days of intense travelling and fundraising is over the money will be officially donated to BEN, and the winner and loser from the great North v South debate will finally be revealed!
