Aldridge Rugby Club have decided to be supporting Help Harry Help Others.


HHHO is a charity built through lived experience of cancer.
Started by Birmingham Schoolboy Harry Moseley, who was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour at just 7 years od, Harry knew more needed to be done to support others affected by cancer. When one of his adult fellow patients become very sick with his brain tumour Harry set about raising money via his well known bracelet making in 2009.

During the last two years of Harry’s life before he passed away aged just 11, he raised over £750,000 for other charities and was crowned Britains Kindest Kid. This rose to over £1.2 million following the news news of his death.

Becoming a registered Charity

Seeing first hand the devastating impact that cancer has on your routine and lifestyle with little support outside of medical treatment, Harry’s mom Georgie identified a gap for those affected by cancer and in 2012 made HHHO a registered charity.

Charity has three objectives:
- Funding vital research
- Giving grants to families suffering financial hardship
- Supporting adults and children affected by any type of cancer from their Drop in Cancer Support Centre in B33.

To tackle the lack of support in the community, Harry’s mom created the centre to offer a home from home environment offering every inch of support outside of treatment. With over 20 services on site, we now support over 1300 families from across the Midlands.
In addition, over 5000 people since April 2023 have come through our door for NHS TLHC lung screening. This sees a 44 ton MRI scanner on site to scan those at high risk of lung cancer.

Why We Need Support
Cancer affects 1 in 2 of us. Every 90 seconds someone in the UK is diagnosed with Cancer. That equates to 1100 people per day. This number is increasing with more people living longer lives. By 2040 an additional !0.5 million people will be affected by cancer globally taking it from 18 million to 28.5 million by 2040. This means more people will need access to emotional, financial and practical support like the range of services that HHHO offer.

HHHO is an independant charity that does not receive government / NHS funding.
In addition to all our service providers for the above services, we have 19 listeners and counsellors on site. Our centre costs £850 per day to run. We dont have a fundraising team. The charity relies on Harry’s mom to be everywhere in the community to engage support. Georgie has to raise £300k to keep our work going and is responsible for both community and corporate engagement. In addition she works on projects like our Respite Renovations where we transform people homes and also undertakes home visits to service users that are either too poorly to visit or they live too far away.

A Message From Harry's Mom

“Thank you for reading about HHHO. We hope the services we offer and the support we
deliver inspires you to get involved and show your support. As a dedicated charity with an expansive mission, we are committed to ensuring that no one navigates the cancer journey in solitude or feels left behind. Our goal is to holistically address the emotional, financial, and practical challenges that arise from a cancer diagnosis, affirming to every family that support and hope are within reach. Operating without a dedicated fundraising team, we deeply value every contribution, whether big or small. Your support is crucial and directly benefits cancer patients and their families, making a tangible difference in their lives. Your partnership in our mission is not just a donation—it's a lifeline.”
