Ben Saunders Foundation – our 2023 Charity Award winners – how are they using the £5,000 donation?

The Ben Saunders Foundation was set up to raise funds to support children and young adults with cancer in the UK. It was set up by Ben Saunders who was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer in October 2019. Sadly, Ben lost his battle with cancer in August 2020. The work of the foundation has been continued in his legacy.

Ben Saunders Foundation own three of lodges in the Cotswolds which are open to families who have been touched by cancer. Since opening their first lodge in May 2021 they have hosted over 290 families.

In November 2023, they came in first place in our Charity Award and took away a donation prize of £5,000. The donation was able to cover the cost of 90% of a new ramp for one of their homes to allow for disabled access, increasing accessibility and enabling more visitors.

“This is absolutely incredible news for us. We have recently purchased a lodge in the Cotswolds and this £5,000 will pay for a ramp to be installed for disabled access. There have been a few issues but the ramp is now 90% completed! The opportunities this will provide is amazing.”
