Charity information

Ben's Heroes Trust

Ben's Heroes Trust was founded in 2011 on the first anniversary of the passing of Ben Loyns who died at the age of 9 after losing his 5 month battle with cancer. The drive behind the creation of the charity was to provide a charity that could help families of children with cancer when they had nowhere to turn, when the NHS treatment options had ran out.
