Ben's Den

Events

Over the last decade, the Trust has held many different charity events, from cabaret evenings to football matches, and even the odd raffle as well as a weekly football competition, Super 7.

The charity is also kept going thanks to the amount of wonderful donations from friends, family and complete strangers who have raised money with marathon challenges, parachute jumps, store collections, bike rides and even fancy dress parties.

We are always extremely grateful for any donations we receive, and without the support of the community we would not be able to continue our work.
