Worcestershire County Cricket Club is delighted to announce our new charity partner HelpHarryHelpOthers.
HelpHarryHelpOthers is a campaign started by an incredibly brave little boy called Harry Moseley. Whilst battling an inoperable brain tumour, Harry was inspired to make a difference to all people with cancer when a friend of his, Worcestershire County Cricket Club supporter, Robert Harley who also had a brain tumour and subsequently passed away.
Within the space of just over two years, Harry had organised and attended over 80 events which included selling his hand made bracelets outside supermarkets, at car boots and community fayres; delivering his PowerPoint presentation to businesses and schools; and public speaking at large public events to audiences of up to 500 people.
Sadly Harry’s health took a sudden turn for the worse following brain surgery in August 2011. On 8th October 2011, and after 14 weeks in a coma, Harry passed away peacefully at home in his Mom’s arms.
Due to Harry’s hard work and dedication during the last two years of his life his family have set up the charity in his honour and his mom Georgie Moseley is the Founder and Chairman of the charity.
Georgie commented, “Partnering Worcestershire County Cricket Club means so much to us as a charity because of the history the club, and the city itself play in our path. My little boy Harry never cared that he had a brain tumour, what he cared about was that his friend Robert Harley did. Robert was a 50 year old company director, a local boy to the city, and a member of Worcestershire County Cricket Club. His sad passing was the inspiration behind Harry’s decision to begin his campaign, and up until the day I lost him he continued to do his upmost to help others afflicted by cancer.
For us to partner WCCC means we are coming full circle to how we started, standing alongside a city and club that was instrumental in our creation. We hope the club and its supporters will wear their bespoke WCCC bracelets with pride, knowing not only that they are helping us I our efforts to support families going through cancer, but also that they are joining us in remembering two very special and much loved people who are sadly no longer with us.”
Speaking on behalf on the Club, Captain Daryl Mitchell also commented, "We are delighted to form a partnership with HelpHarryHelpOthers and help them to support families who are coping with a loved one being diagnosed with cancer.
It’s a particularly rewarding partnership as Robert Harley, a close friend of Harry’s having met while in hospital together, was a Worcestershire man and a regular supporter here at the Club. We look forward to working closely together in the future and I know the lads will be wearing their HHHO bracelets with pride."
WCCC will be working closely with HHHO over the coming months and future details will be announced in due course. We have even created an official bespoke Worcestershire County Cricket Club Bracelet which represents our club colours, Black, Green and white, which will be available to purchase online www.hhho.org.uk or from our WCCC Club Shop during the 2014 season.
