Will Greenwood is an English former rugby union player who played for Leicester Tigers and Harlequins and was a member of the 2003 World Cup-winning squad. Will became a patron of Child Bereavement UK following the death of his son Freddie.

Will said:

Being in the winning World Cup team has given me a higher public profile. It is a privilege to be a patron, and it would be a great waste not to do more to speak up for others. It also gives Freddie’s short life more positive meaning.
