    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 nonprofit.

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

    Story

    Our mission is to help anyone fighting mental health problems. We believe no one should have to go through this kind of fight alone and in doing so, keeping the memory of our Benny Boy alive.

    We know that some people find it easier to speak to someone unknown to them as opposed to their family or friends. With this in mind, we are looking to recruit a network of volunteers who will pledge 10 minutes a day, or a week, to check in with those who wish to register for our service.

    We are also looking into fundraising so that families who unfortunately find themselves in our position, will be able to access a donation towards paying towards a funeral and other associated costs. Money worries should be the last thing that a family have to cope with when losing a loved one to suicide. Any donations would be made in memory of our Benny Boy. We know that he would take some comfort from the knowledge that even in death he continues to help others.

    Any donation, no matter the amount, will make all the difference with our mission to help others considering or affected by suicide. Thank you

    "A bright light in life, and now brighter in death".

      We would like to thank Chris Dicky Bird and his colleagues from The Light Dragoons Charitable Trust. They not only attended Ben's service but they have also kindly allowed me to become a member of their Private Facebook Group. In doing so, we have been able to share Ben's message with their huge audience. We received a phone call on the 6th April to say that they were making a donation to Ben's charity and we received a bank transfer yesterday of £1000 We would once again just like to offer our sincere thanks and appreciation.

      Today we have registered with HMRC to allow us to claim tax back on donations via Gift Aid and also provides us with acknowledgment of legitimacy with our efforts. We have also spent the day registering as a CIO with the Charity Commision for England and Wales. This will then provide us with a registered charity number, again proving our commitment in helping others. Thank you all for your continued support, it really does mean so much to all of those who are involved in making this initiative a success. Take care and stay safe. 💙💙💙

    We lost our beloved Ben suddenly and unexpectedly on the 26/01/20 to suicide. He was 20 years old. Ben was loved by so many, his family and a wide circle of close friends. He had so many people in his life whom he could trust and speak to about how he was feeling-and he did.
