Gunner & Co. team up with The Benjamin Pritchard Foundation

Gunner & Co. have chosen The Benjamin Pritchard Foundation for their 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.

Louise Jeffreys, MD of Gunner & Co. said:

“As the mother of a little boy, I couldn’t help but be struck by this story and the bravery of Ben’s parents to make something good come from something so tragic.

As a company we are proud to give sustained support to local charities to make a little difference”
