Raising money for Street Child United, Ben's walk will take him from London on the 1 June to Moscow on the 14 June via cities in each of the European qualifiers for the 2018 World Cup.

“I am looking forward to the challenge although I know it will be very tough both physically and mentally,” commented Ben (History 2012). “I've trained quite a lot including walking several half-marathons,” he added. 

Whilst at Wadham, Ben played football for both College and the University including in the 2015 and 2016 winning Varsity match teams. He now works for Cambridge United Community Trust.
