Raising money to give a special child a special life

Ben, 15, a pupil in year 11 at Driffield School, East Yorkshire, was diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy in 2008, so The Ben Hodgson Fund was set up by his grandmother, Sue, in 2010 in an effort to give Ben the best quality of life that he can possibly hope to get.  In addition to providing all the necessary disability equipment that Ben will need, such as a specially adapted toilet and wet room, etc. (they have already raised money to pay for a special lift, and had a specially adapted bath donated by the hospital). Sue hopes to give him as many life experiences as she possibly can.

The aim of this site is to raise as much money as possible towards the cost the equipment required and also towards providing the life experiences planned. We will also provide feedback on how much has been raised already and what it has been used for.

In order to help us achieve out aim of improving the quality of Ben's life please pledge your support by making a donation through the button below. Your money will be much appreciated and go a long way to making a special little boy very happy. Thank you.
