Ben has lived at Milltown Community in Aberdeenshire since 2015, where he volunteers in the tool refurbishment workshop. Whilst the volunteers work, they keep themselves happy, listening to the radio, chatting and having a laugh together. Ben enjoys refurbishing the smaller tools that are sent to Malawi, such as hatchets and hammers. He is always interested to hear about how the trainees and graduates are getting on and the project is developing. Outside of work Ben has a keen interest in politics, enjoys going to church and is a big supporter of Montrose Football Club.
“I hope my work helps people like myself with a disability in Malawi to have a better income and quality of life.”
