In December 2012, Ben organised a drum marathon to raise life-saving funds for Children with Cancer UK. Ben, now 13, said: “Me and my friend Greg both really like drumming. I was just sitting in a rehearsal and just suddenly came up with the idea.
“Throughout my three years of treatment I had continuous support from charities – one of which was Children with Cancer UK. My past has inspired me and my friend Greg to do something to repay the charity for what they’ve done for me.”
Ben and Greg have so far raised over £1,000.
