HELPING people cope with cancer has always been at the heart of Help Harry Help Others (HHHO) since it was set up by the inspirational Harry Moseley in 2011.
Now thanks to the hard work of dedicated charity workers and Harry’s mum Georgie a new Drop-in Cancer Support and Wellbeing centre has opened its doors to help more people cope with the devastating effects of the disease in honour of the brave Sheldon youngster.
Birmingham’s Lord Mayor Shafique Shah and Deputy Council Leader Ian Ward officially opened the Drop In cancer Support Centre on Meadway, in Yardley.
Over 100 guests attended the opening including Michellin star chef, Glynn Purnell and former Birmingham City winger Nathan Redmond.
Pupils from St Thomas More Catholic Primary School started the day’s proceedings followed by speeches from the Chairman of HHHO and Georgie.
A number of events are set to be held at the Drop-in Cancer Support and Wellbeing Centre for everyone affected by Cancer from siblings and children to parents and partners.
There will be everything from benefits advice to support groups for families and patients, craft groups to careers advice and wig and bra fittings for ladies.
Local businesses and Birmingham City Council sponsored the refurbishment of the centre which has taken eight weeks of hard work from volunteers and friends of the charity.
Georgie said Harry’s charity has been built around our own personal experiences of coping with cancer.
“The centre will benefit so many people and is a priceless service to anyone going through this terrible journey.
“We always aim to work with other charities in providing support to help cure, care and cope with cancer.
“Having support from charities like Macmillan and Marie Curie, so much more can be achieved from us working together.”
