We are delighted to announce that our Charity of the Year for 2021/2022 is Help Harry Help Others.
HHHO is a charity that is very close to our hearts as they were one of the charities to support our former colleague Leasa during her cancer battle. Sadly, Leasa passed away in October 2020 leaving behind her husband and little boy, who continue to receive help and support from the charity.
About Help Harry Help Others
HHHO is a charity that was started by Harry Moseley before he lost his battle with cancer in 2011 aged just 11 years old.
Due to the impact that cancer had on their family, his mom Georgie decided to continue with Harry's incredible work and made HHHO a registered cancer charity in 2012 so that she could help other families where she felt more support was needed.
How the charity helps
The charity aims to provide support to those who need it in 3 ways.
Finding a cure
HelpHarryHelpOthers is unique in its efforts to not only help find a cure for brain cancer via our HelpCURE fund but also in helping adults and children who are affected by ANY cancer.
Drop-in cancer support
We offer grants through our HelpCOPE fund to those who are suffering financial hardship and also run a Drop-in Cancer Support Centre via our HelpCARE fund.
Free on-site services
The centre offers over 17 free services on-site and supports adults and children with every inch of support they may need outside of treatment.
How we plan to help them
We’ll be doing our bit to raise money for the charity by donating the money from our dress down days to the charity along with any other fundraising events we take part in throughout the year - we have plans to do Pretty Muddy and the Three Peaks Challenge.
A number of our team have also signed up to be volunteers for the charity and will be offering their support wherever they can.
