Solihull Editorial 27th Jun, 2017   0

A TEAM of fitness fanatics broke not one but two goals when they took to a static bike to raise much-needed funds for Help Harry Help Others (HHHO).

The 46-strong team of volunteers from Solihull based homebuilder David Wilson Homes Mercia initially set out to cycle 406 miles and raise £3,000 in aid of the charity in their 24 hour cycle challenge.

However thanks to the huge efforts of the team a total distance of 551 miles was cycled and so far a whopping £3,400 has been raised.

John Fitzgerald, Managing Director at David Wilson Homes Mercia, said: “We are delighted that we could raise over £3000 from our 24 hour Bike-a-thon and hope that we can continue to increase this total.




“Well done to all our volunteers who worked so hard to surpass our target of 406 miles and to those who donated.”

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.


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.

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 Mercia.

“It was great to be able to kick start their 24 hour bike ride at their office and also close the event as they came to the end of their huge challenge.

“This was a fun and fabulous task and their support will make such a difference to the families we support who are affected by cancer.

“We would like to thank all that took part and donated to the challenge.”
