The Charlie Cookson Foundation

Ben Hawkins – Our 30th CCF Family

When we look back at the families we have supported, we feel a mixture of emotions, blessed that we have been able to relieve these inspirational parents of their financial burdens, saddened that these parents are not going to see their sick child grow up, comforted knowing that we have helped them spend quality time which is quickly overcome with emotion for our angel Charlie. Without him none of this would have happened and continues to happen.

Please let us introduce to you our 30th CCF Family…Kerry and Gordon Hawkins, the parents of the courageous Ben Hawkins and his two older brothers 11 year old Ashley and 9 year old Matthew from Co Armagh. Both parents are Ben’s carer as his care is so intense, they are both his lifeline as he needs 24/7 care.
