We've fallen a little bit behind with notifying you all about the donations made from the proceeds of our carrier bags, but rest assured we have continued to seek out worthwhile causes and make donations!
We've just donated the sum total of the carrier bag fund from January 2016 - June 2016 to the Best for Ben campaign on GoGetFunding, as nominated by one of our customers, Clive S.
Ben sustained life-changing injuries while playing in the swimming pool with his children whilst on holiday in Cyprus. He broke his neck in three places and as a result, suffered a massive amount of damage to his spinal cord. Ben is now coming to terms with living life as a tetraplegic.
Ben is a young and strong man who has a real determination to get home to his family. To achieve this, there is an extremely long road ahead so that the family can be together again. They need to raise as much money as possible to create access to and extend the entire house. Ben will require specialist care, so there also needs to be plenty of room to accommodate a carer.
If you'd like to know more and especially if you'd like to make a donation yourself, please visit the Best for Ben campaign page on GoGetFunding.
The next carrier bag donation should be in early October. If like Clive, you have a charity you'd like Proud Lion to support, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
