The second Ben Gautrey Foundation Dinner and Charity Auction has taken place and was a fabulous evening for all involved. The second evening held in remembrance of the young rider aimed to raise as much money as possible for the ongoing success of the Foundation, and it proved to be another great success.
Organised by Ben’s mum Lorraine and sisters Alex and Jess, the even was hosted by Eurosport presenter Steve Day and Radio City’s Claire Simonson and is a wonderful testament both to Ben’s achievements in life and also to everything the Foundation has managed to achieve for young people in sport. In his life, Ben was a wonderful sportsman and there couldn’t be a better accolade for the talented young man. His mum Lorraine said she was extremely grateful for everybody’s support;
‘I would like to thank everybody this evening for their continued support…I am extremely grateful for their time given and the monies raised to date. There have been numerous recipients who have received grants from the Ben Gautrey Foundation and I can only hope that 2013 will be another successful year.’
Here is a fantastic selection of photos from the evening,
