In 2021, Harry Moseley, who lost his battle to cancer aged 11, should be celebrating his 21st birthday on 22nd February 2021. His creation – HelpHarryHelpOthers – still supports many children and adults affected by cancer at their drop in Cancer Support Centre.
free@last, who provide support and opportunities to children and young people who live in disadvantaged communities, are also celebrating their 21st year of improving the lives of those they serve. Georgie & John, the founders of both organisations, have joined forces to create #Challenge21 – a chance for you to celebrate with us, have some fun and raise a bit of cash too.
We began with a vision, a dream that saw the people of an impoverished and neglected inner-city community being set free from all that stopped them realizing and reaching their full potential in life. The vision became a reality in 1998 with the development of a support group for dads and an attempt at a community musical performance called Hopes & Dreams. free@last was established to develop and structure our work and was finally registered as a charity in December 1999 and a limited company in 2003.
free@last’s Vision is to improve the lives of the children and young people of Nechells and to turn a community of poverty into a community of prosperity and opportunity.
We are committed to providing opportunities, activities, mentoring and support for children and young people in Nechells, and to further their interests by working with their families, other agencies and the community as a whole.
HelpHarryHelpOthers Charity which was started by Harry Moseley before he lost his battle with cancer in 2011 aged just 11 years old.
Due to the impact that cancer had on their family, his mom Georgie decided to continue with Harry's incredible work and made HHHO a registered cancer charity in 2012 so that she could help other families where she felt more support was needed.
