Building firm reach milestone for Help Harry Help Others donations

Solihull Editorial 19th Sep, 2018   0

CELEBRATIONS were the order of the day after a Solihull based homebuilder reached a milestone in their fundraising efforts for Help Harry Help Others (HHHO).

David Wilson Homes Mercia has raised over £70,000 for the charity over the last two years, which aims to support children with cancer and their families, through a range of fundraising events.

The company held a golf day which raised £7,500 to put them over the milestone.

The developer is now planning its annual sportsman dinner on October 5, which still has tables available for those wanting to attend and contribute towards the worthy cause.




HHHO was started by Harry Moseley from Sheldon.

Harry raised money to help others by making and selling bracelets online, whilst suffering from cancer. He died in 2011, aged just 11.


Georgie Moseley, founder of Help Harry Help Others and Harry’s mum, said: “I am overwhelmed by the support of all the management and staff at David Wilson Homes.

“It has been wonderful to work with them over the last two years and their fundraising has really supported the charity.

“I look forward to their future fundraising efforts and thank all involved in raising the money so far.”

The charity offers practical help to families affected by cancer, professional support for children with cancer and also funds research to find a cure for brain tumours.

John Fitzgerald, managing director at David Wilson Homes Mercia, said: “Help Harry Help Others is an incredibly worthy cause and we are proud to have raised over £70,000 so far.

“It is really important to us that we continue our efforts throughout the year, including with our annual Sportsman Dinner, to support children with cancer in the West Midlands.”
