Thank you for visiting Ben's fundraising page.
Ben Cheek, or Benjie to his family, went missing on an expedition in the Karakoram mountains of Pakistan in July 2008. We will never know exactly what happened to him. Words cannot describe how much we miss him.
Ben first visited Pakistan in the summer of 2006 and was truly touched by the warmth and kindness of the local mountain people who welcomed him into their homes. As a family we experienced the same warmth and compassion from the local people who were involved in the search for Ben.
In honour of Ben, we are raising money to help build and support a children's village in the mountains of northern Pakistan for orphans of the 2005 earthquake. This village will be built in Rawalakot. We know Benjie would be so proud to be helping the children there.
Donating through Justgiving is quick, easy and totally secure. It’s also the most efficient way to sponsor me: SOS Children's Villages gets your money faster and, if you’re a UK taxpayer, Justgiving makes sure 25% in Gift Aid, plus a 3% supplement, are added to your donation.
Thank you for your support,
Heather, Mick, Tom, Jim and Laura Cheek
