Ben Coates

On the 6th November Ben Coates was spending a weekend away with his much loved family and friends.
While Ben was out having a surf, something wasn’t right. He exited the water and collapsed from a massive stroke. This devastation was then followed by a massive bleed on the brain requiring a life saving operation.
Ben beat the odds and fought hard to be with us today. But the future is still unknown.
Bens qualities are second to none. He idolises his family, and would do anything for his friends if they needed help.
Now it’s our turn to help.
If you could please donate to assist this young family get through this difficult time, and to work towards giving Ben the best level of care on his road to recovery.
Bens family would appreciate it if you leave your name with your donation, as they would like to thank you in the future.
ive been friends with Ben for over 20yrs, and played cricket with Ben for a few of those years.
Since we have retired from cricket, we  now enjoy going on holidays together and catching up when ever we can.
The go fund me has been set up, so the money donated will be transferred straight to Bens bank account.
The money raised is going to help Ben with his recovery, such as on going Physio, and  with day to day living.
Once again thank you for your support.
