Minchinhampton Golf Club is proud to host The Best for Ben Golf Tournament to raise funds for the Best for Ben Appeal:
Whilst on holiday in April 2016 with his partner Ella and young family Olivia (7) and Iris (2), Ben sustained life-changing injuries while playing in the swimming pool with his children. He broke his neck in 3 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 (the complete or partial loss of use of all four limbs and torso). Ben is now finally in Salisbury Spinal Unit, and after numerous chest infections and months on a ventilator, he is able to breathe by himself, which is major step for somebody with Ben’s level of injury. This is a HUGE undertaking, the support from the community in Avening and the surrounding areas where Ben lives has been amazing... and we hope you can be too… we need your help to BRING BEN HOME!!
