We are still so grateful for our week away in July, Vinnie & his little sister Orlah talk about it all the time & ask to come back! Xx

Bens Den mascot Monkey (aka Julian Bloor) ran The Robin Hood half marathon πŸ’™πŸ’›

I have no idea how Julian Bloor ran in our Ben’s Den Mascot costume…it’s difficult just walking in it for a few minutes. It’s also very hot and even hotter on a sunny day like today. A massive effort!! πŸ’™πŸ’›

Thanks Julian .

Heanor Town under 10s Step out to raise over Β£1,700 πŸ’™πŸ’›

We are the Sugar Blade Steppers and all boys from Heanor Town Blades under 10’s grassroots football team. One of our team mates during Covid lockdown was diagnosed with Diabetes and was a poorly for some time in hospital. One of us also in the team looked at local charities at school and found he wanted to support Bens Den as they help children with Leukemia and Cancer to have a holiday. We tried to help each other during Covid and decided we wanted to take on a challenge to make a difference for other children.
