The NEC Group has raised more than £21,000 for its employee-elected charity of the year, HelpHarryHelpOthers (HHHO).
Georgie Moseley, chairman and founder of HHHO, visited the venue to receive the donation of £21,489.27 and was presented with a cheque decorated with beads like those used to make the charity’s renowned ‘Harry bracelets’
The charity began after the tragic death of 11-year-old Harry Moseley after a four-year battle against a brain tumour.
While fighting the tumour, Harry, from Birmingham, made and sold handmade bracelets to raise more than £500,000 for Cancer Research UK.
John Hornby, chief operating officer for the NEC Group, who presented Georgie Moseley with the cheque, said: “HelpHarryHelpOthers is a great charity and one that has truly touched the hearts of NEC Group employees. Georgie is truly inspirational and we wish her the very best for the future. I would like to thank each member of staff across the NEC Group who made a donation or helped with fundraising activities over the last 12 months.”
Employees from across the NEC Group raised the money through a number of fundraising activities, including making and selling bracelets, cake sales, a tuck shop, fun days, a quiz and contributions from staff ticket sales.
On collecting the cheque, Moseley said: “HelpHarryHelpOthers has really enjoyed having the NEC Group as its charity partner. All management and staff have been really instrumental in not only raising valuable funds for HHHO but also in creating such awareness for our charity so that we can do ‘what we say on the tin’ – help all those children and their families affected by cancer.”
