On Friday 22nd October we took delivery of our Spare 10 for Ben bench.
Spare 10 for ben are a local charity that are also based in East Durham. The Founder of the charity is Clare who was Ben's mum. Sadly Ben took his own life in January 2020 and by creating this charity Claire has been able to focus a legacy that will help to remember Ben.
The charity raise funds and place inspirational bench's where they think people may want to go to take their own lives.
East Durham Veterans Trust raised funds at Armed Forces day by holding a raffle and purchased one of the Ben
We saw it as fitting that we now have this bench at east durham veterans trust with the inspirational quote as our clients walk through the door.
We would like to thank Clare and all the team at Spare 10 for Ben for the support in making this happen. Thank you
