One of Ben Fordham’s listeners has made a very generous donation to a family raising desperately needed funds for their two-year-old son.

Archie was born with no eyes and has a whole list of other challenges including a rare form of epilepsy.

95-year-old Marjorie joined Ben and Archie’s family at Dee Why RSL, where she donated the huge sum of $40,000 to pay for a specialist van for Archie.

Marjorie made the pledge last month but Ben only revealed it after checking in with her family who says she’s just an incredibly generous person.

The cheeky character had everyone in tears and roaring with laughter as she explained her connection with little Archie.

Ben: “How would you describe your eyesight?”

Marjorie: “Bloody awful!”

Ben: “Did you say bloody awful?”

Marjorie: “No, I didn’t!”

Ben: “No, you didn’t? You did or you didn’t?”

Marjorie: “Oh, I might’ve!”

Archie’s mum Fiona says she can’t thank Marjorie enough for her generosity.

“You have managed to get us an amazing vehicle for Archie so that we can take him to all his therapy, to all of his specialist appointments.

“Because of you, we can now take him everywhere with us.”
