Ben all the way to Paris – Because We Care

We can finally unveil the van which will be providing much needed support Isle of Wight Storm Trooper Ben Allen on his fundraising journey at the end of this month. The stunning wrap featuring the popular Star Wars character that Ben will be dressed as, has been designed and printed by Beardsalls of Newport.

In 2016, Ben Allen and his support team, Simon Cherry and Matthew Mew, walked from the Isle of Wight to London to raise money for the Joe Ellis Trust. After a year’s break, Ben and his team are back and this time they are raising money for Layla’s Trust, for which they hope to reach this year’s target of £4000.

The back of the new support van says ‘One Stormtrooper, four friends and a little stroll to Paris. How hard can it be?’. Well we will be following Ben all the way to the Eiffel Tower and will be sharing with you exactly how strenuous the team are finding it. Hopefully the team will find a little comfort in having the support van to hand when it is needed.

You can pledge donations to Ben’s Imperial March here and find out more about his plans here. Follow our Facebook and Twitter pages for regular updates between the 28th of April and the 6th of May.
