Help Harry Help Others launches smartphone app

Solihull Editorial 7th Dec, 2016   0

HELP Harry Help Others (HHHO) has launched an app to keep followers in the loop on the news at the charity.

The smartphone app is the latest development by the charity which was set up by inspirational Sheldon youngster Harry Moseley during his brave battle with cancer.

The charity was awarded charity status in 2012 and in a bid to keep supporters up to date with everything it does and the services available a monthly newsletter was created.

However Harry’s mum and Founder of the charity, Georgie Moseley, said the team of three cram that much into the newsletter they felt the monthly installment has become quite long and people struggle to read all they do on a monthly basis.




So the charity teamed up with ConnectTogether to create the app which not only updates users on what’s happening but allows them to book tickets for events, complete surveys and donate.

She added: “I am very excited about the launch of our new HHHO app which is free to download from the App Store.


“When deciding to make HHHO a registered charity I decided I wanted to make the charity as visual as possible and update people on everything we do and services available.

“It’s also great to show our appreciation by highlighting and thanking those who are fundraising or volunteering for us.

“To date we have done monthly newsletters but we cram that much in that we felt they become very long and people struggle to read all we do on a monthly basis.

“Also as a tiny charity with just three of us day to day producing the newsletter it takes so much of our time to produce.

“Therefore when we were approached by Connect together about the system and app specifically for charities we saw the immediate benefits of making us more efficient whilst at the same time offering immediacy on news and updates.

“We only launched the app last week and we look forward to developing the news and information on there as we get to grips with it all.

“We have been overwhelmed at the interest and people that have downloaded.

“It shows how people are interested in the impact we as a team are having on the cancer community.”

Harry, who died on October 8, 2011 at the age of just 11 and after a four-year battle with a brain tumour, began selling bracelets to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

His campaign – and his unique personality – led to massive sales of the bracelets and the support of a whole raft of A-list celebrities who bought and endorsed his efforts.

When Harry lost his brave battle his heartbroken mum Georgie and a team of friends took up the batton in his honour to maintain and grow Help Harry Help Others to help children and their families who are battling the disease.

Marc Duthoit, founder and CEO at ConnectTogether, said: “We are delighted to have produced the Help Harry app, as they really are a fantastic Charity with a super team that does incredibly good work both locally and nationally.

“It’s completely free to download, and then people can be kept up-to-date on the important work that Help Harry does, and also quickly and securely support them should they so wish.

“Once the app is on a followers phone, its then also very easy for them to book tickets for events, complete surveys and take part in special promotions, plus lots more, all with just a couple of clicks.”
