He grew from being a successful stockbroker to a successful surfer (in the sense that he loved the sport and did a great deal of good for others through it).
Those who knew of Dave John Pritchard knew he was a community man, a big part of the surfing community of Bude, helping with both Bude Waveriders and Bude Surf Veterans. It is a testimony to his wonderful community spirit that his family has requested no flowers at Pritch’s funeral, but instead donations to his two favourite community groups: Bude Surf Vets and Bude Waveriders.
So, oh my, it shouldn’t surprise any of us that Pritch is still out there doing his bit even now. Yes, his family’s Crowdfunding for Good memorial page has so far hit pledges of £3,250, with 12 days still to go. Massive!
You can still donate online here in memory of Pritch.
