George’s Fund Appeal
Celebrating the short and special life of George Price by promoting the interests of Herefordshire’s primary age children.
Help George’s Fund support our county’s young children
George’s Fund was set up by Laura Hughes, one of our trustees, to remember her five-year- old son George. The Fund is focused on supporting children in Herefordshire aged three to eleven. Every donation help fulfil this ambition.
Laura’s family had their lives turned upside down on 27 August 2020 when George suddenly became sick. The next day he was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG), a highly malignant brain tumour which affects children almost exclusively between the ages of 4 and 1. In the consultant’s words, they had been “ hit by lightning”.
They returned home to spend as much time as a family with George and his two brothers, Oscar (then 6) and Harry (then 2). Six weeks later George passed away in the arms of his family.
George’s Fund remembers his short and special life. As Laura explains,”As a mum, one of your jobs is to tell your children that ‘everything is going to be ok’. I couldn’t do that for George, so if we as a family can make a small difference to another child’s life then it will give us huge comfort.”
