We enhance bereavement support and services to help families who have lost a child


Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

We have so many awesome members who wanted to come together and do something great for an excellent local cause. We decided a 24 hour WOD would be pretty challenging so are holding it in aid of the Be More Ben charity from Friday 5th July - Sat 6th July.

We have chosen The Benjamin Pritchard Foundation (Be More Ben) which was founded in 2018 by Ben’s parents after Ben died at just 8 years old from a rare and very aggressive brain tumour called DIPG. The charity helps families like theirs cope with the loss of a child. Ben was a local boy and the charity is close to the hearts of some of our members, whose children knew Ben and went to school with him. 

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

About the charity

Be More Ben

RCN 1178933
Our son Ben was diagnosed with DIPG, a very rare and aggressive brain tumour, aged 7. Previously fit and well, on diagnosis, we were told his tumour was inoperable and incurable and that we had at best a year left with our son. Despite taking part in a clinical trial and having intensive treatment, Ben passed away 6 months later. Following his death, we found little in the way of regular, ongoing support that was informal and for the whole family. To lose a child and feel that there is no help available to you is frightening and leaves you feeling isolated and vulnerable. We set up The Benjamin Pritchard Foundation – Be More Ben to enhance bereavement support and services for parents, families and siblings who have lost a child under the age of 18.
