Thank you

normal_IMG_1479Our thanks to the following companies and individuals who have kindly and generously donated (goods, services or money) to Fund 4 Ben


This year has been busy, and we have been helped by some really fantastic, kind people. The major event has been our garden transformation. Our garden has been changed from a grass, sloped, muddiness to having fab paving and a ramp up to a lovely sensory summerhouse. None of this could have been done without 2 of the nicest people you will ever meet – Fred Taylor and Eddy. They worked so hard – and for weeks ! Laying paving, building a wheelchair ramp up the sloping garden to a summerhouse they built! It looks fantastic and Ben is so happy.

He can now get outside in his wheelchair – without the fear of tipping onto his face! – he can also go into the summerhouse and be out of the sun / or cold. He can’t control his temperature well when he is outside, so now he has somewhere that he can be just right, play and watch the world go by.

They gave all their time and energy for free, and it was lovely to have them around. Charlie our dog really misses spending all day getting in their way! The project also could not have happened without the kindness of local businesses. GPH in Inverurie gave us all the slabs, sand etc for free. Inverurie skip hire gave us the use of a huge skip for free. ……………………………………….


  • A huge thanks from us to our friend Gillian, she has been a star! She has organised lots of fundraising ideas, from making very cool doggy bandanas, a wine and craft buying evening at her home, Easter name the rabbit hamper, etc. Such a lovely help to us!
  • Inverurie Skip Hire for loaning us a skip – massive help to save money that can now be spent on something for the sensory garden.

But please believe me that your kindness is appreciated.
