STAFF and FAMILIES at the Help Harry Help Other’s (HHHO) centre welcomed the Duke of York to their new home on Friday (April 27).

Harry Moseley’s mum and founder of HHHO, Georgie Moseley, said she was delighted and honoured that Prince Andrew had visited the new centre in Stechford.

She added: “It was a huge honour to welcome the Duke of York and show him around our new Birmingham Drop In Cancer Support Centre.

“On Thursday February 22 we marked what would have been Harry’s 18th birthday and I know he would be very proud of what we’ve achieved in his memory. To receive a royal visitor at our centre makes it extra special.”




Harry met the Duke in 2010 when he was crowned the Children’s Champion by the News of the World for his fundraising efforts.

Since Harry passed away in 2011 Georgie has kept in touch with the Duke of York by writing letters, keeping him updated with the charity’s work.


During his visit, the Duke of York he learnt more about the work delivered by the charity’s dedicated staff and volunteers, who provide counselling and professional advice for people of all ages affected by cancer.

His Royal Highness spent time with three people using the services on offer during his visit, who explained how they benefit from the work of HHHO and the new centre.

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

During his brave battle Harry began selling bracelets to raise money for Cancer Research UK – raising over £750,000 through bracelet sales and gaining the backing of many high-profile celebrities.

When Harry passed away his heartbroken mum Georgie and a team of friends took up the baton in his honour to maintain and grow Help Harry Help Others to help children and their families battling cancer.

Georgie carried on her Harry’s legacy by setting up HHHO and in 2015 the charity opened the Birmingham Drop In Cancer Support Centre which supported more than 400 families across Solihull and Birmingham.

He also met with Trustees of the charity before unveiling a commemorative plaque.
