My story

[p]That's right - Mr Charity is back.[/p][p]On the 8th of November, I'll be shuffling out of time to some music in front of 1000+ people (and a Facebook Live Stream!) at the Troxy, Limehouse. This isn't just so you can laugh at me (although feel free to), but mainly to raise money for two fantastic charities - Sports Traider and Teenage Cancer Trust. TCT is a great charity that helped support my cousin Lou through her battle with Hodgkin's lymphoma and I want to help her support them back.[/p][p][br][/p][p]In 8 short weeks, I'm training in the art of dance and raising Β£3000 and I'm asking you all to have a couple of pints less this week and donate towards this instead. There are some boozy legends among you which wouldn't dream of sacrificing a cold frothy one, but I couldn't think of a better charity to sacrifice them for.[/p][p][br][/p][p]Lou was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma 3 years ago. For those unaware, Hodgkin's lymphoma is a cancer originating in the white blood cells and affects more than 2100 every year. She couldn't even run for a train without getting out of breath or a burning sensation in her lungs after the effects of chemo. Without the dedicated support team at TCT, it would have been an even harder fight for Lou and other young people around the country battling with all types of cancer.[/p][p]I'm also choosing to raise money for Sports Traider, who have set up a chain of charity sports shops with the aim of ensuring all young people have the opportunity to take part in sports and benefit from the opportunity sports and volunteering brings - confidence, self-esteem, friendships and improve mental and physical wellbeing.[/p]

A journey through Ben's life can only be told through dance. From knee sliding the heck out of the year 7 christmas disco to grinding his way to free pints every night at Nottingham's contemporary and tap mecca Foxys. Ben Clare IS figure skating
