Daksh Gupta leaps to fundraising success and raises £142,000 for BEN

One of the industry’s key business leaders, Daksh Gupta from Marshall Motor Holdings, swapped the boardroom for the open skies, jumping out of a plane at over 10,000 feet to raise funds for BEN. Daksh completed the jump as the pinnacle of a year of fundraising, in BEN’s first ever Industry Leader Challenge event.

Conquering his fear of heights has paid off, as currently the fundraising total stands at £142,000. Daksh hopes that the total will reach £150,000 once the final pledges from the last few companies come in. Well done Daksh!

More about the challenge

Each year a leader from the automotive industry will take on a personal fundraising challenge for BEN. Once completed he/she will pass the ‘baton’ onto a new leader whose  aim is to raise more money than the previous challenger.

The inspiration for this event came from Sarah Sillars OBE, who took on her own personal challenge for BEN, successfully climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in 2010 and raising an incredible £38,000.

2016 Industry Leader

Daksh Gupta, CEO of Marshall Motor Group and BEN Trustee, has generously stepped up to the challenge for BEN in 2016. Not for the faint hearted, this adrenaline-fuelled challenge will put Daksh completely out of his comfort zone when he sky dives from 10,000 feet, falling at speeds of up to 120mph! The skydive will take place on 22 July 2016 at 1pm at the Hinton Skydive Centre in Brackley, Northants.

Daksh aims to raise a six figure sum for BEN from his challenge and is confident that, with the support of the industry, this is very much achievable.
