Mendip council staff wear red for Ben

Staff at Mendip District Council wear Red to remember Ben and raise money for CLIC Sargent.

Wear red for Ben CLICOn Friday 22nd February, Mendip District Council's Charity of the Year, CLIC Sargent asked people to wear Red in honour of Ben Crutchley from Frome, who unfortunately passed away from Cancer in 2012. His family have been supported by two CLIC Sargent nurses ever since Ben was diagnosed.

It was the Council's dress down day on the 22nd February and many of our staff wore Red to honour and remember Ben together, as well as donating money to support CLIC Sargent to help other families in a similar situation.

Ben's family have been working hard over the years to raise funds for CLIC Sargent and have now almost raised £230,000, with the aim to raise £1,000,000.

They organise the Mells 10k held in October every year in honour of Ben. Anyone can sign up to either walk, run or cycle a 10k route around Mells. If you fancy this challenge, you can sign up here Mells 10k.
