New cancer support centre opening to mark Harry Moseley’s 18th birthday

A new drop-in cancer centre is being opened in Birmingham to mark what would have been Harry Moseley’s 18th birthday.

The brave cancer patient was just 11 when he died in 2011 following an inoperable brain tumour. Before he passed away, the raised a staggering £750,000 for cancer charities by selling beaded bracelets. His mum Georgie has gone on to raise even more money in her son’s name through their charity Help Harry Help Others.

Now a new support centre is being opened in Stechford tomorrow by ITV’s Ben Shephard, who is an ambassador for the charity. Speaking to Birmingham Live, Georgie said:

“We have recently had to relocate our Birmingham Drop In Cancer Centre due to land regeneration of our old site. It's been a really hard time but I’m delighted that we’ve been able to secure not only a new building but the future of our centre.

“This year would have been Harry’s 18th birthday so we thought there would be no day more poignant to open the new centre and have Harry’s ambassador Ben Shephard will be coming along to do the honours.”

The charity first opened a Birmingham Drop In Cancer Support Centre in Stechford in 2015 and it's already supported more than 400 families throughout Solihull and Birmingham.

The official launch of the new centre will take place from 11.30am to 1.30pm on February 22nd.
