Ben Mill – Jack Petchey Winner May 2019
Nominated by a member of staff: When Ben was 10 years of age, his parents gave him a gift of money which he could use for himself or to sponsor a child in need. Ben chose the latter, through a charity called Stand by Me.
The charity gave Ben the opportunity to visit Nepal recently, where he worked with the children in the community he had sponsored. Ben spent time educating the children and doing manual work, such as painting the school shower facilities. On his return, Ben created a presentation to show to his tutor group and they were all very impressed.
