A cancer charity has recognised the efforts of an accountancy firm chief who has led efforts to raise more than £100,000 in its support.
Help Harry Help Others was set up by Harry Moseley while battling an inoperable brain tumour, to fund cancer research and help children and their families affected by all forms of cancer.
Harry’s mother, Georgie, set about making the campaign a registered charity and continued her son’s work after he died aged 11 in 2011.
It has since helped more than 1,000 families across the Midlands and provided more than £1million in funding supporting cancer patients, their families and also its vital research.
David Baldwin, Co-Founder of BK Plus and former Director of Baldwins has been appointed to the board of trustees for Help Harry Help Others, where he will help support the future direction of the charity. David first started working with the charity back in 2013 where he made them the official charity partner of Baldwins and raised more than £100,000 in its support from 2013 until 2019 when David finished at Baldwins.
David said: “I am honoured to have been asked to join the board at Help Harry Help Others, a charity which has made a real difference to the lives of hundreds of young people and their families across the Midlands.
“I am looking forward to being able to help shape the future direction of the charity and continue the work that I started all those years ago.”
Georgie Moseley, who is the founder and CEO of Help Harry Help Others, said: “David has been instrumental in helping us to raise funds and providing support to the charity over the years, his experience working with SME businesses and entrepreneurial mind set are qualities that we are excited to embrace within the charity.
“this was just the next step for us to have him as part of the charity, I am delighted that he will be joining the existing board of trustees, Tom Ross, Jonathan Till, Robert Spittle and Joan Smith including myself, where we will be able to continue to make a difference in helping people across the Midlands.”
