Benz on the Green 2020 is a charity car event taking place on Saturday 9th of May 2020. If you’ve joined us before, you’ll know that it is a wonderful day out for all the family with a BBQ, bouncy castle, face painting, a sweet shop and plenty of games to make this a day out for the whole family. A charity raffle and auction with incredible prizes, plus a field of over 100 beautiful Mercedes Benz cars to look at.
This year, we are delighted to be supporting the Friends of Mary Rose, registered Charity Number 1048183. The money raised will be helping all of the pupils at The Mary Rose Academy which is a special school, based in Portsmouth, for pupils aged 2-19 years who have severe and complex learning difficulties. This school charity is very close to our hearts here at Benz on The Green so we thought it was a perfect choice as our chosen charity. For more information please go to our Why Friends of Mary Rose page.
The Benz On The Green team are really excited to be working with this charity and hope that we can all dig deep on the day and really make a difference.
The day starts at the Prestige Car Service (PCS) workshop in Horndean. PCS is the number 1 Mercedes Workshop in Hampshire. Olly, Jack and Graham will be offering one-day-only discounts on all work, as well as special offers on air conditioning services and diagnostic checks using their Mercedes Star diagnostic tool. Simon from Eco Vehicle Tuning will also be here with some excellent deals on re-mapping. If you would like to take advantage of these special discounts please make sure you book your car in as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

Our convoy will depart from the PCS workshop (PO8 0BJ) at 10.30am, taking in an hour of countryside along some fantastic roads before arriving at The George Inn in the beautiful village of Finchdean, where Benz on The Green takes place.
