Since the Test, we have been approached by many families with dependent children where a parent has been told they don’t have long to live.
Through our Family Support Service, we are now able to support these families.
“In addition to the incredible funds raised, Red for Ruth is also about raising awareness, breaking taboos and, in Ruth’s words, helping families and kids ‘Do death well’. To know as a result of the wonderful support we’ve had, families are not facing grief alone is exactly what Ruth wanted.”
Thank you to everyone who got involved, helped us spread the word and made donations. We are incredibly grateful to each and everyone of you.
”From seeing children supported by our charity ring the five minute bell for day two of this Test to Joe Root saying he was thinking about the Foundation supporting families facing one of life’s toughest tests during his incredible batting spell, this year’s Red for Ruth has been my proudest yet. Ruth would have been utterly humbled and delighted by the generosity of the crowds and the cricket family, as I am. Your generosity means so much to me but more importantly it means we can help even more families than we could have expected, to prepare for grief, death and dying. From the bottom of my and my boys’ hearts: thank you.”
