CELEBRATIONS were in order as a Solihull based homebuilder handed over £170,165 to Help Harry Help Others (HHHO).
The David Wilson Homes Mercia division has been raising the funds since 2017 for the charity, which supports those with cancer and their families, through a range of fundraising events.
The homebuilder has been a long time supporter of HHHO and has hosted a number of fundraising events over the years.
These include a 24 hour cycling challenge, where volunteers from across the division took to a stationary bike to ride over 550 miles, a charity boxing match, as well as other fun days, golf days, and charity dinners.
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.
Since then, the charity has launched a School Social Enterprise that encourages other children to make bracelets for charity, and launched a Drop in Cancer Support Centre for families.
Georgie Moseley, Harry’s mum and founder of Help Harry Help Others, said: “Our tiny charity is quite simply overwhelmed by the ongoing support, commitment and dedication of our friends at David Wilson Homes.
“Since that very first initial presentation to the team about HHHO, and all the services we offer, they have grasped every opportunity to do all they can to help, even through tough times like the pandemic.
“It’s a privilege and honour to work with their team and also get involved and support their many events – even when I have had to perform the dance on stage from Dirty Dancing and run on a treadmill in their foyer.
“I consider them to be an extension of our tiny team, who undoubtedly have had an impact on all we have achieved over recent years.
“We’d like to say a huge thank you to David Wilson Homes for making a difference every single day to those we support that are affected by cancer.”
Dominic Harman, managing director at David Wilson Homes Mercia, said: “Well done to all our volunteers who worked so hard in their fundraising efforts, and to all those that have donated.
“Help Harry Help Others is an inspirational local charity and we hope that the money we raise for them this year can go towards this very important cause.”
