Yomp 50 miles to make plenty of smiles for Bens den πŸ’™πŸ’›

Just a little story from Troy Smith

We walked on the Derwent Valley Heritage way, which follows the Derwent from Ladybower to Shardlow, but finished at pride Park with Ben being a Derby fan.

We had a bus paid for by Belfield to take us to Ladybower for 0730 to start the first 25 miles to Matlock, the second 25 was Matlock to Derby.
Everyone on the walk paid to stay overnight at Matlock. Most of the walkers were from full power fitness. We have hammered social media for weeks with posts leading up to the walk. So far we have raised over 3k, but expect more to 4k by the time all monies are in.

Darren got us access to the stadium for the finish which made it very emotional

A great, but hard weekend with a great bunch of people

 

Raised so far is a brilliant Β£6,056 xx

AND A MASSIVE THANKYOU FROM US TO YOU πŸ’™πŸ’›πŸ’™πŸ’›

 


Thank you very much for your support and allowing Ben’s Den to work the way we intended it to! We expect cancellations and last minute bookings, that’s the way the families have to work. Sometimes the plans don’t go to plan…1 cancellation due to being back in hospital and 3 families having to end their holidays early all in one weekend. It’s not how we want it, but this is the way it works and your amazing support makes it work! πŸ’™πŸ’›

Darren, Β Tracey and the team.

Cannot thank you enough, we’ve just got back from the best week at Tattershall Country Park, what a beautiful relaxing family holiday. Such a beautiful setting and the caravan is just amazing, so comfortable and clean and perfect view and close to everything. We’ve some hospital investigations coming up next week so this last week has been just what we needed. Already planning next year and couldn’t do it without you and Bens Den xx ❀️ xx

Thank you to Tracey and all at Ben’s Den we have had a fun packed Easter weekend at Tattershall Lakes. The caravan is perfect and in a great location we got to watch the jet skis on the lake from the balcony! This was the perfect weekend after Cohen’s treatment finished and recently having his Hickman line removed meant this was the first time he could go swimming without a dry suit.
Thank you again we all had the best time πŸ₯°πŸ’™πŸŽ—
