There will be no Ben Ball this year. Sadly, it’s the first time Ben Ball has been cancelled since World War II! However, with the uncertainty of the COVID-19 situation and the impact it’s had on our industry, we felt that it was the only option.
The cancellation of Ben Ball, along with the postponement of other fundraising initiatives, as well as a decline in donations, means Ben is anticipating a £1m income shortfall this year, similar to many other charities.
Instead of Ben Ball, which was due to take place on 9th December, we plan to run a virtual fundraising event, which we hope you will get involved in. So watch this space, we’ll reveal more in the coming months!
The show will go on next year so we’re looking forward to seeing you in December 2021 for an extra special celebration.
