The inaugural event last year was an unmitigated success, attended by more than 1,000 people and raising a staggering £103,000 for the ‘Help Harry Help Others’ Charity. This years Harry’s Ball, the fundraiser that both pays tribute to, and raises money for the charity founded by Harry Moseley and his mother Georgie, promises to be an even bigger event.
This years event is being held at Birmingham’s ICC on Saturday 19th October. The event is being supported by Hollywood Monster, Hotel La Tour and Harvey Nichols and will be hosted by Midland radio legends Tom Ross and Russ Morris. A great night of entertainment is anticipated, with a champagne reception to launch the evening, followed by aerial acts, kids acts, celebrity acts, magicians, photographers, fun photo booths, live and silent auctions, a raffle with some really special prizes and a fantastic DJ. The Voice finalist, the super talented Matt Henry, himself a Brummie from Bartley Green, has been announced as performing on the evening.

The Help Harry Help Others charity is achieving some amazing things and the funds made from the Ball will help it to continue its excellent work.
In the last few years the wedding favours market has really taken off in a big way. As a woman married to an Italian man I was fully versed with the importance of ‘Bomboniere’, the small gifts that are given to guests on the occasion of your wedding. But now it seems that every wedding has a special treat for guests, often placed on the dining tables next to name cards and Champagne glasses. Wedding Favours are always a real thrill to both give and receive, but what if I said there was now a range of very special wedding favours that not only look beautiful, and are inexpensive, but are also raising money for an exceptional cause.
The Help Harry Help Others charity, set up to continue the work of Harry Moseley, the brave 11 year old who pioneered the Harry bracelet scheme, but sadly lost his battle with cancer in 2011, has decided to turn Harry’s bracelets into wedding favours which can be personalised to match any colour scheme. The handmade bracelets cost £2 each, and can include beautiful pearl style beads that are just so elegant and absolutely perfect to compliment any wedding scheme.
Harry’s mom, Georgie, sums up why this is such a good idea. She explains: “Harry always enjoyed bringing smiles to people’s faces and he couldn’t think of a happier time than at someone’s wedding.
On such an amazing day what better gift to give your loved ones than something not only totally unique but also something that you and your guests know will help make a real difference to the lives of families
going through their own cancer journey. “
The handmade bracelets cost £2 each, including postage and packaging. To order or find out more tel: 0121 244 6149, email firstname.lastname@example.org or you can visit www.hhho.org.uk.
