Edgar’s Gift is a charity set up in 2010 in memory of Ben Edkins, who passed away following a year long fight with cancer. He was just 25 when he died after battling Rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare and aggressive form of muscle cancer. The charity was founded by Ben’s parents Julie and Neil Bradman, alongside Ben’s family and friends – all of whom Ben influenced and had a special and positive effect on their lives. Edgar’s Gift aims to raise money, which will enable us to provide special days out, unique experiences and luxury gifts for young adults aged 18-30 who are suffering from cancer.
Our fundraisers at Edgar’s Gift work tirelessly in order to raise money. We organise events (large and small), from quiz nights, raffles and sponsored walks all the way up to football Games featuring ‘Legends’ of years gone by. Edgar’s Gift has links with local hospitals that make us aware of people who need our help. Applications for help can be made via our ‘Contact’ page on the webiste. The charity strives to provide treasured/memorable gifts or positive experiences for families that are going through a tough time.
We at Edgar’s Gift will continue to raise funds will help and support as many people as we possibly can, in any way shape or form. If you would like to help or raise funds for Edgar’s Gift in whatever way possible, whether it be through a charity collection, a sponsored event, or by organising something not stated, you’re very welcome to to get in touch. We would love to hear from you.
