A charity has been set up by two parents grieving the loss of their five-year-old son.
In December 2021, Helen and Pete Blythe suffered the tragic loss of their son Benedict who diedsuddenly following a collapse at school.
Heading back to their home in Stamford after his death, they left carrying a pile of his clothes and a piece of paper ripped from a notepad with the details for a police officer.
Realising there was a lack of support for grieving families, the pair, along with volunteers who have an experience of child loss, set up the organisation Bereavement and Loss Matters (BALM).
Helen said: “We can’t take away the unbearable grief that comes with losing a beloved child, but we can try to make accessing help and support a little easier.
