Weʼre raising £50,000 to help us raise funds to provide vital equipment to support Carl Bennion following a life-changing accident.

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.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


On the 5th August 2018 Carl had a life changing accident which has left him severely paralysed. As a result, Carl needs vital equipment including a bespoke wheelchair as well as adaptations to his home enabling him to live his life as independently as possible. Carl has always been there for his family, friends and work so we want to show our love by raising funds to support him during this time.

Climbing the three peaks in Yorkshire and covering 25 miles is not easy but on Saturday 6th July 2019 starting at 7am Pen-y-gent café BD24 0HE, Team Benni will commence the challenge upwards to Pen-y-gent, Whernside (LA6 3AS) and Ingelborough (LA6 3AR). We are aiming to finish at the Golden Lion Hotel (Horton in Ribblesdale) to celebrate Carls big 50th birthday with a pint or two and a bite to eat.

Of course, we would love you to join us and climb all three, or just one peak or even better meet Carl in the pub for a drink at the end. If you can’t make it at all and want to pledge your support, please give to our just giving page. This would mean such a lot to Carl and Gemma who have had a difficult and challenging time over the last 18 months.

Thank you

Team Benni

    Hi Carl is still in Wythenshawe hospital week 4, he has just been diagnosed with an infection in the metal supporting his neck. Still not sure of the treatment plan and he is really fed up😓. So he now needs extra physiotherapy to regain his ability and strength to transfer into the wheelchair. Luckily your support means he can get intensive private therapy. NHS therapy is limited. So thank you it means so much ❤️ He reads every single message so please keep them coming, it keeps his spirits up knowing he's got you all thinking about him. X

    Update from the Page owner

    Hi everyone Carl and Gemma want to thank you for your overwhelming support and generous donations. It's just amazing. Carl has been out of Oswestry for just over three weeks but he has a really bad infection so he's back in Wythenshawe hospital. It's been really tough for them. Once he gets out he can choose his own wheelchair. The NHS one is really cumbersome! It's down to your donation that he's even in a position to think about getting it ❤️ Thank you on behalf of Carl and Gemma xx
