SOLIHULL-based Open Study College reached its £11,000 milestone for Birmingham cancer charity Help Harry Help Others (HHHO), writes Aimee Lempriere.
HHHO offers direct and practical support to cancer sufferers.
It became a registered charity in September 2012, and was founded by Georgie Moseley, following the passing of her son Harry.
Georgie was annoyed and frustrated by the lack of support for families affected by cancer, so started the ‘Help Harry Help Others’ campaign.
Harry raised over £750,000 for cancer research in the last two years of his life, before he passed away on 8th October 2011, aged just 11 years old.
Samantha Rutter, CEO at Open Study College, said the cause was very close to the Open Study College’s heart.
“We truly admire the brilliant work that Help Harry Help Others does to support families in their time of need which is why we’ve continued to support in any way that we can.”
Georgie added: “A huge thank you to the team at Open Study College for their continued support for Help Harry Help Others.
“Their amazing donations mean we can keep providing much-needed support to those who need it.
“In a year that marks the 10th anniversary of the charity, alongside the current cost of living crisis, ensuring we can support cancer patients and their families feels more important than ever.”
