Josh suffered a seizure which left him with brain damage. Much like Harry the bed Joshua was sleeping in was no longer suitable and we had to raise £10,000 to buy him a new one which suited his needs. Once Josh’s family raise the first £5000 the foundation granted the family the remaining funds needed and Joshua’s bed was ordered. After this we also helped Joshua’s family fundraise for a sensory room for Josh, which we are now just waiting on this to be fitted.
Harry was starved of oxygen at birth leaving him with a life of challenges. The bed Harry was sleeping in was no longer suitable and as the local council could not provide a new bed Harry faced the possibility of sleeping on the floor. We refused to let this happen and we started to help Harry and his family fundraise. Harry’s family raised an amazing £5000 and the foundation granted Harry another £5000. Before we had the time to raise the remaining funds their family’s local council came forward and donated the bed Harry needed! Which left the family with not only a new bed but also £10,000 to spend on home adaptions and other pieces of equipment Harry needed.

A few weeks ago, we had Benji sign up with BLF to fundraise for cochlear implants. Unfortunately on this occasion the NHS could not fund this and the parents where told they would have to do it privately.
After just a few short weeks of being with BLF, Benji received help from local public, family and friends, the Charity Ninja’s, and an anonymous businessman from the USA. And we have some great news. He has now exceeded his £80k target in just a few short weeks. We are so pleased for Benji and his family.
After doing our calculations, it has come to our attention that Benji actually has slightly more than needed, and his family are requesting we donate the difference to Ear for Alex, another BLF child who is fundraising for an ear reconstruction and to be able to hear. This is estimated at around £9k.
We want to say a huge thank you to everyone who has helped make this happen.
Please follow Benji’s story and watch his new life unfold –
