The popular Thurston Community College pupil died tragically on Sunday, May 1 after an incident involving an air gun.

The event, which is ticketed, is open to anyone and will feature sumo wrestling suits, a bungee run, candy floss and popcorn machines as well as a barbecue and other activities.

Ben’s favourite music will be played and there will be a balloon release in his memory at the end of the evening.

People will be able to buy a balloon and attach a message to it.

There will be free soft drinks for every ticket holder.

The pub is hosting the fund-raiser as a mum of one of his friends is a supervisor there.

Tickets are available from the pub in advance and on the door. They are priced £2.50 for those aged under 16 and £5 for adults.
