The Benjamin Pritchard Foundationenhancing bereavement support and services
The Benjamin Pritchard Foundation was founded in 2018 to provide bereaved parents with reliable, on-going support to help them cope with the loss of their child #bemoreben
Ben was just 8 years old when he died from a rare and very aggressive brain tumour called DIPG. Prior to his diagnosis he was a fit, healthy and happy young boy who loved football, both playing for his local team and watching Bristol City FC.
In the weeks following Ben’s death, rather than being bombarded by help from professionals, Shane and Sarah, Ben’s parents, noted there was a huge gap in the market for reliable, ongoing support. Even less for bereaved siblings and nothing for other family members; grandparents, aunts and uncles.
This is why they set up The Benjamin Pritchard Foundation – Be More Ben in June 2018. Be More Ben provides parents and families affected by the death of a child* with networking opportunities, days out and activities and offers ongoing support services such as talking and complimentary therapies.
