      Due to a delivery mix-up, we received a refund for a Christmas gift we bought for our son and would like to donate this amount in memory of your son Ben

      Instead of a Christmas gift for Tom and Emma Evans, a donation to this charity at their request. So sorry to hear of your loss, and congratulations on your incredible work fundraising.

      My brother ran the marathon and wanted me to donate to Ben and Dean's charities instead of getting him a birthday present. Very for your loss
