He raised over £650,000, with his fundraising bracelets being covered extensively in national and local media.His fundraising success resulted in the posthumous Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2012 JustGiving Awards.

Help Harry Help Others is now a registered charity which aims to help all families suffering from cancer.The charity will continue Harry’s schools’ initiative and the fundraising bracelets. Fronted by celebrity ambassador Duncan Bannatyne, star of TV’s ‘Dragon’s Den’, the initiative is built around Harry’s famous bracelets, allowing schools to raise funds for the charity and for their own school fund. It will also inspire children to ‘do good’ and make a difference.It will also teach children basic business skills “without them even realising”. Harry’s Enterprise covers profit, loss, finance, marketing, sales, IT, team work, confidence building and public speaking.Harry’s mother and charity chairman Georgie Moseley said: “So much of what Harry was about was getting his class mates from up and down the country to do what they could to help others. He inspired them but also gave them the tools to create something they could use to raise money and do something to help those they cared about”.www.HelpHarryHelpOthers.org.uk  88 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
