Matthew Benn University Fund

June 25, 2017 my cousin Matthew Benn lost his mother and only parent after battling an aggressive 9 month cancer. Sandy Benn Kendall was only 43 and survived by her two children whom were her world. Her bond with her children was her one purpose in life that made her whole and it showed by the love and respect her boys showed for her.

Sandy and her boys moved back home with her parents in January this year . A family with strong values in love and family over any material possessions. Sandy fought hard and was taken far too soon. Robbed of all the special moments in life that her boys are yet to achieve and live.

Matthew and his brother are now separated in care because of circumstances and Matthew been such a rock has somehow managed to continue his 2nd year in uni. He is passing, he is on Centrelink and strives to make a better future for himself. He travels an hour each way to uni on the Gold Coast and has been applying for a part time job for 3 years with no joy

As his cousin, I would love to be able to raise enough money so that Matthew won't have to worry for a while. I would really appreciate any and all help that could take any money burdens Matthew may be having off his chest. So that he can concentrate on his studies and healing.

I would like to thank everyone for their support and generosity during this difficult time as every little bit counts, with every donation being greatly appreciated.


Please post and share.
With Love.
