Colin Parry

Chair of the Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Peace Foundation

On 20th March 1993, the day before Mother’s Day, an IRA bomb exploded in the town of Warrington, Cheshire. Over fifty people were injured in the explosion, which killed three-year-old Jonathan Ball instantly and claimed the life of twelve-year-old Tim Parry five days later. Two years later, Tim’s parents, Colin and Wendy Parry founded the Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Peace Foundation in memory of the boys. Today, the charity is the leading UK provider of support to victims of terrorism and to young people and communities whose lives have been affected by extremism. The Peace Foundation works nationally and internationally, devising pioneering education programmes and bespoke work with local authorities, community groups and schools. Colin Parry OBE, is Chair of the Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Peace Foundation.
