Weʼve raised £558 to help fund memorial benches in memory of Ben Quartermaine so sadly lost his life at just 15 years, after getting into difficulty in the sea.
- Funded on Friday, 8th November 2019
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
After the tragic events of July 2018 where 15 year old Ben Quartermaine sadly lost his life after being caught in sea currents.
Myself and Vicky are travelling by motorcycle, from Clacton-on-Sea, Essex to John O'Groats in Scotland stopping off at various RNLI stations on the east coast along the way.
We are raising funds to go towards memorial benches in Ben's name.
We are also on this ride raising much needed funds for the volunteers that go above and beyond in the time of someone's need. And if we can raise awareness on sea safety that will be an added bonus. Please see our other JG page for donations to the RNLI.
For a full itinerary of the stations we are stopping at please search 'Ride For Ben 2019' on facebook
