Celebrating the short and special life of George Price by promoting the interests of Herefordshire’s primary age children.
George’s Fund was set up by Laura Hughes, one of our trustees, to remember her five-year- old son George.
Laura and her family had their lives turned upside down on 27 August 2020 when their son suddenly became sick. The next day he was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG), a highly malignant brain tumour (cancer) 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.”
George’s Fund is supported by regular fundraising events and activities, run by Laura and her family as well as community supporters

Our client rang to thanks HCF for awarding her a grant – she had been speaking with her husband about disconnecting their gas meter in order to reduce their bills – their concern for how this would affect their kids had stopped her from doing so. She said the £500 would make a life changing difference to them this winter and enable them to have hot water and use the cooker.Citizens Advice, regarding Fuel Poverty Appeal
We raise funds in Herefordshire for Herefordshire. We connect local people who care with causes that matter and then give grants to help those most in need. It’s a wonderful virtuous circle of giving which supports and strengthens our county.Frank Myers MBE, Chairman
Our client was really blown away by the support. He feels like a weight has been lifted. His neighbour, who picks up food for him, says he looks 10 years younger because of the easing of stress by the fuel grant.Leominster Food Bank, regarding Fuel Poverty Appeal
