Ben Cohen

Ben is Web Editor for Tearfund. This can sometimes feel a bit like being ‘senior hairstylist for Bigfoot’ but he does his best. He writes a bunch of stories for the website, regular emails to supporters and much more besides.

Before this, he worked in radio for a spell. Personal highlights include bolting down a bacon sarnie before the Chief Rabbi arrived in the office and interviewing Sooty. He is a member of Grace alternative worship community in Ealing, where he is known for creating an entire Heavenly City out of lemon jelly (to scale, clearly).
