Ambassador Roles

Kidscape

I have a true affiliation with Kidscape having raised just over £200,000 for them during The 401 Challenge. The work they do to combat the issues of bullying across all areas within the UK is incredible. Their vision is simple, they believe that all children should be able to grow up in a world free from bullying and abuse, and that all adults should keep children safe and help them to reach their full potential.

Their mission is to ensure children live in a safe and nurturing environment. By providing training, support and advice to children, parents, schools and those in professional contact with young people, they enable them to gain knowledge and develop the confidence and skills to challenge abuse and bullying in all its forms.

"Ben is an amazing role model for anyone who feels that their life has been blighted by bullying. He has shown us so clearly that you do not have to remain a victim, that you can recover and regain your life. Ben's achievements are beyond heroic and they show people around the world that you can achieve anything, that you can be true to yourself. Every step he's taken will help Kidscape to prevent all forms of bullying and protect children by teaching them life-changing skills." Claude Knights (Chief Executive Officer)

Claude adds, "Ben is a true hero and we are so proud to have him as a Kidscape ambassador. He exemplifies the values that underpin our mission and inspires all who come into contact with him, helping to raise their confidence and self-esteem. We look forward to working with him for many years to come."

When asked to be an ambassador for this amazing charity I jumped at the chance and am looking forward to working closely with Kidscape in the coming years on a subject I am extremely passionate about.

Inspire+

Whilst I was running The 401 Challenge I came across Inspire+. Inspire+ are a Grantham based sports charity that aims to improve the lives for Young People through sport, leadership and promoting healthy active lifestyles.

Inspire+ is a totally unique charity, who receive no Government funding and are recognised nationally as delivering one of the most comprehensive sports programmes to primary schools. The charity also serve secondary schools through services that includes a comprehensive and innovative leadership programme.

"We are humbled that Ben has become an ambassador for the charity. The impact he has had on our schools through his whole school assembly visits has been staggering. Ben's journey is unique and will inspire anyone who is lucky enough to hear it!" Vincent Brittain (Chief Executive Officer)

Vincent asked me to become an ambassador of his charity, and after seeing the impact Inspire+ has had on the 19 schools I visited on my Grantham day, I couldn't say no. Since joining, I have visited 33 Inspire+ schools as part of a tour which was simply one of the best two weeks of my life, I can't wait to see what they have planned going forward.

The Kents Sports Trust

Kent Sports Trust Foundation is a charity devoted to changing young peoples lives through sport in Kent. They are passionate about helping all young people to achieve their full potential in life by delivering high quality physical education and sport opportunities both in schools and across the community. Their aim is to foster relationships with families to encourage participation, reduce obesity in children and provide opportunities for the Kent community to connect through sport.

"I'm delighted Ben joined our illustrious line up of ambassadors as he fits all the core values of the perfect role model, helping inspire people of all ages to be active." Steve Wolfe (Chief Executive Officer)

Steve adds, "Having only ever intended to run a few miles with Ben, I've now run three marathons with him and he gave me the inspiration to launch our charity, so it was only right that he is helping us shape the future and encouraging more people to have a more positive, healthy lifestyle."

Having met Steve on a run in Kent, Steve's passion for sport and building confidence in kids and young adults is magnetic. Steve offered me the opportunity to be an ambassador for his charity and I was more than happy to accept. Looking forward to seeing what the future holds and how The Kent Sports Trust Foundation develops.
