Trustee – David Benford

Joined: January 2009

I am the doting father of Darcy. She was born in 2001 and was diagnosed at 10 months with cystinosis. Darcy is particularly lucky as, by sticking to a strict regime of medication, she is rarely sick and takes all her drugs orally. She is a patient of Birmingham Children’s Hospital, who do a fantastic job for her. I am a digital forensic investigator, cyber-threat specialist and company director. I am also an associate lecturer at the University of Derby, teaching in the School of Computing & Mathematics and the School of Law. I enjoy running and keeping fit. I enjoy my work with the Foundation and my primary role is to look after publicity.
