Birmingham car dealer marks 10 years of supporting Help Harry Help Others

Sarah Mason 9th Nov, 2021

A CAR dealership has renewed its support for Help Harry Help Others (HHHO) a decade on since donating its first car.

Lookers Vauxhall Birmingham has handed over the keys to a new car every year since the charity was founded so the team can deliver services to those who cannot access it.

HHHO was the creation of the inspirational Sheldon youngster, who died in 2011 at the age of just 11 after a four-year battle with a brain tumour.

Harry’s mum and founder of the charity, Georgie Moseley has been leading a team to help cancer patients and their families across Solihull and Birmingham since Harry’s death.

She said: ““At Help Harry Help Others, we are so grateful for Lookers Vauxhall Birmingham’s continued support and for providing a vehicle which helps us to reach as many people as we can.

“A safe and reliable set of wheels is vital to our operations, the car is a lifeline for the ever-fluctuating number of clients that require a home visit or mobile support from our charity and without it they would be left stranded and alone.

“The vehicle also helped during the pandemic where we implemented a shopping service for those most vulnerable.

“Finally, it makes a huge contribution to our fundraising, as without a dedicated fundraising team, it enables me to get around to many meetings and events to keep those all-important pennies coming in.

“Lookers Vauxhall Birmingham also goes the extra mile for us every year in terms of servicing, ensuring we are on the road and helping us to raise essential funds to keep Harry’s legacy alive through the support we offer.”

Since the start of the pandemic in March 2020, the charity, like many others, has been affected by a downturn in donations. The impact of restrictions also meant charity fundraising events were impacted.

Alan Collins, general manager of Lookers Vauxhall Birmingham, said: “Help Harry Help Others supports a large and expansive area across Birmingham and Solihull, so it is crucial that it has the transport it needs to reach as many people as possible. We’re privileged to continue to provide support once again this year and for many years to come.”
