Ben’s Bike-A-thon

3:47pm 12th November 2012

Ten year old Ben Griffiths was inspired to hold his own sponsored bike ride after witnessing the care given to his grandfather by Weldmar Hospicecare Trust earlier this year.

Gareth, Ben’s father, said “Ben wanted to do something to say thank you for looking after his granddad and for helping him to stay at home during his illness”.

Ben completed his bike ride, along with his mother, at RAF Waddington in Lincolnshire in October 2012, and visited Joseph Weld Hospice recently to present a cheque for £510.22.

Grant Usmar, Assistant Director of Fundraising, said “We’re really grateful for the amount of effort Ben put into his event, and very impressed at the amount he raised”.
