Richard Arnold, TV presenter and broadcaster

Richard has been an ambassador for Sue Ryder’s bereavement support services since 2021 and talks about the importance of speaking openly about grief, following the death of his Dad, Dave.

Richard looks directly at the camera with a half-smile, he's against a grey background.

“I am honoured to be an Ambassador for this wonderful charity. It’s a cause very close to my heart, as everyone will be affected by grief at some point in their lifetime.

“After the death of someone close to you, it can seem like people feel awkward or uncomfortable when it comes to speaking about that person in your presence. This is perhaps because friends or family worry that it might upset you or serve as a painful reminder of their death, but in my experience, it is so important for those around you to continue to say their name."
