What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

Hello and welcome to each and every one of Bens friends family and followers. Benjamin John Priest was born on February 27th 1995 in Cradley west midlands. His father Richie Priest (Richard) and Julia Green, had the most beautiful boy that anyone could ever wish for and his name was chosen by them in memory of Richies late grandfather "Benjamin John" who sadly passed away after suffering with parkinson's disease.

This little boy "Ben" had the most gorgeous cheeky face with blond hair and lovely blue eyes and was Richard & Julia's first born. He was born at Wordsley hospital Stourbridge and came home to the 18th floor of a high rise flat number 143, Kipling house, Stevens road, Tanhouse estate, Halesowen B63 2NF.

Just a few years later Richie & Julia had another child another beautiful boy and named him Jordan Lee Priest. Jordy (Jordan) was born on October 29th 1997 again at Wordsley hospital in Stourbridge. Another happy smiling gorgeous face that both parents were so lucky to be blessed with.

Many years on we are now faced with the heartbreaking reality of Bens Death. Ben was taken tragically too young and far too early by someone with no consideration for even himself let alone anyone else, when he was a passenger in a vehicle which overturned, whilst speeding along a country lane on June 30th 2018 at 4pm. Ben died from his injuries sustained in the crash and the cause of death was given as "severe head trauma".

It would be greatly appreciated and any donation would be wonderful to help give Ben a lovely send off and put in place a memorial where his close friends and family can spend time and gather their thoughts. Please give as much as you can afford because when the funeral costs are met we will give publicly the remainder to West Midlands air ambulance.

Condolences to Bens family and friends at this very sad time. R.I.P. Benny Boy xx.
