A campaigning mother of cancer victim Harry Moseleu has been left devastated after her holiday was cancelled.

Georgina Moseley is one of the thousands of customers left without flights after Monarch Airlines entered administration.

She was due to fly out next Monday to Lanzarote to spend time on her own on the sixth anniversary of Harry Moseley’s death.

Georgina, who runs Help Harry Help Others charity, said she had been trying to get through to the Air Monarch helpline but had no success so far.

Harry died in October 2011 after losing his battle with a brain tumour.

I was meant to fly out to Lanzarote next Monday because it would have been his sixth anniversary of his death, so I wanted to book a little holiday for one, just me to get away.

It was a package holiday so I’m feeling optimistic they will sort it out but I’m not getting through to anyone just yet because the lines are so busy."

– Georgina Moseley

Georgina set up the Birmingham Drop-In Cancer Support Centre in Stechford in 2015 and won a Pride of Birmingham Special Recognition Achievement award in 2017.

The centre offers financial advice, careers support, bereavement counselling, holistic therapies and charity workshops for anyone affected by cancer.
