BEN Fund Raising

The guys sailing on L’Ismé have had cake sales at work, raffled an Aston Martin Performance Driving Day, organised a quiz, and are now planning a ‘Black Tie & Fabulous’ Charity Ball to raise money for BEN. Huge thanks to all of you who have supported the team - if you haven’t helped so far there is still plenty of time to contribute!

Help the L’Ismé Crew in their BEN Fund Raising Now:

The Charity Ball is on Friday 31st August 2007 at The Red Lion in Basingstoke. Tickets are just £35 each and are available from Peter Brown ( All mermaids and sea captains are most welcome.

Watch Leader David Scott has generously donated a sailing experience on the 77ft yacht ‘Drum’ - last raced in the 2005 Fastnet by former owner Simon Le Bon. To bid for this fabulous adventure, please contact Melanie Cole (

Alternatively you can simply send a contribution direct to BEN (cheques should be made payable to BENTrade and clearly marked Fastnet 2007).
