bemoreben is our wellbeing charity for 2020
Ben Pritchard 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 life.
After his death, Ben’s parents found there was little in the way of ongoing, continuous support available for them. Even less for bereaved siblings and nothing for other family members, so they set up the Benjamin Pritchard Foundation. The charity aims to provide a reliable, informal support network for parents whose child has died and their immediate families as well as offering ongoing services such as counselling and complimentary therapies.
Gunner & Co. are proud to fund a monthly coffee morning for bereaved families.
