A MAN whose ex-partner was killed in the 7/7 London Underground bombings four years ago is staging an event on Monday to help others suffering trauma.
Film-maker Raj Babbra lost his ex-partner Benedetta Ciaccia in the Aldgate bombing in July, 2005, one of seven rush-hour commuters killed on a Circle Line train, and has since made a film about the impact of her loss called Life Without Benedetta.
Now he is setting up a Living Through Loss’ organisation to help others take the first steps in learning to live with loss.
Raj is marking its launch with a free event at 7pm on Monday near Euston station at 203 Eversholt Street, with speaker Harleen McLean of Landmark Education. Its aim is to help others regain their smile.
There are 200 places for those interested, booked free through his new Living Through Loss’ website.
The terrorist attacks in 2005 claimed 52 lives and hundreds more injured at Aldgate, King’s Cross and Edgware Road stations and on a bus in Tavistock Square.
