Money raised in memory of Harry Moseley topples £1m

The total money raised in memory of Harry Moseley has reached its £1 million milestone, a week after 11,000 people gathered in Birmingham for a fundraising walkathon.

The Walk For Harry fundraising event raised £420,000 for Birmingham Children’s Hospital and Acorns Children’s Hospice in Selly Oak.

Harry died of an inoperable brain tumour in October 2011, after spending his last two years raising money for charity by selling handmade bracelets.

Harry’s Mother, Georgina Moseley, said: “I’m extremely overwhelmed by Harry’s latest achievement.”

Georgina has recently started Harry’s official charity, which will raise money for those affected by a brain tumour.

"Harry’s Charity, Help Harry Help Others, is bittersweet for the family; we’ve lost our beautiful little boy, but it’s lovely to raise money for those who need it."

“We know the pain that some families are going through and it’s the charity work that keeps us going.”

Help Harry Help Others has opened a shop in Yardley – the area of Birmingham where Harry grew up.

“We hope the shop will be a reminder of the work that Harry’s done for the city and we hope that people will continue the journey with us by raising money in memory of Harry,” added Georgina.
