Charity Of The Match – Southport: Beyond Bea

posted in: News | 0

Each game we select a charity to support in association with the Horsfall Community Trust via a bucket collection. The money collected is split 50/50 between the trust and the charity, raising much needed funds to support local and national initiatives.

The chosen charity for this Saturday’s home fixture vs Southport is Beyond Bea and was nominated by Ryan Burston.

Beyond Bea is a charity based in Manchester, it was established by Steph, who is a Midwife. Steph has always had a keen interest in bereavement care since she started her midwifery training and since qualifying. In 2017, Steph’s daughter Bea was born and sadly died due to a severe brain abnormality. Combining her existing passion and her desire to create a legacy for Bea, Beyond Bea was established and now provides bereavement training throughout the UK for free. This year alone Beyond Bea will have training over 2000 students and health professionals.

Speaking about why he chose the charity, Ryan said:

“Beyond Bea offer free baby loss and bereavement training to healthcare professionals. The study days they provide help ensure people are looked after in the right way following the devastating loss of a child.

After losing my Daughter Adriana in April 2018 this charity has become one that is very close to my heart and the demand for their services is increasing, so every penny raised for them really does help.”

For charities such as this, every penny helps, so please dig deep and support this fantastic cause. You can also support them by following them online:
