Harry Moseley was an amazing nine-year- old boy, who, in 2009, set up the campaign – Help Harry Help Others – after his good friend and fellow brain tumour patient, Robert Harley, became very ill. Harry dedicated the last two years of his life to raising money for vital research into brain tumours, but tragically lost his own battle with this terrible disease at the age of eleven. During those two years, he raised over ￡750,000 for charities and won the hearts and minds of millions of people with his determination, passion, love of life and most of all his desire to “make a difference”.
The decision to partner with Help Harry Help Others was an easy decision for us to make. Harry Mosley naturally had exactly what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur. He had the ambition, passion and the determination to make a difference and he didn’t let his illness stand in the way of what he wanted to achieve. These personality traits are some of the key elements of what makes a great entrepreneur and through our award program KickStart and our partnership with Help Harry Help Others we have been inspired to help make a difference to those who want to turn their ambition into reality.
Please take a moment to watch Harry’s story and how they help others.
“Here at HHHO, we are incredibly proud and honoured to have Baldwins Accountants as supporters of Help Harry Help Others. It’s a great synergy as Baldwins don’t only just give something back to the community, they also inspire people.
The support from everyone at Baldwins has helped immensely with what we are aiming to achieve as a local charity. Through the three ways that we help others and make a difference we have donated hundreds of thousands of pounds. This couldn’t have been achieved without the help from others, people like Baldwins Accountants.
On behalf of everyone at Help Harry Help Others a huge thank you for supporting and helping us to make a difference, it means a great deal to us all.”

Three of the ways that Help Harry Helps Others:
Brain Cancer now kills more people under the age of 40 than any other form of cancer, accounting for 25% of all children cancers diagnosed. With 9,300 new cases each year it remains far and away the least funded research program, receiving only 0.7% of Government Cancer research funding. HelpHarryHelpOthers looks to change that as it raises money to fund dedicated Brain Tumour research.
We provide financial support to families on their own cancer journey, whatever the cancer, whoever the patient. It could provide grants for rent, food or hospital visits. It will also provide practical support to families – e.g. If the washing machine breaks down, the fund could provide a replacement. We hope through this fund, to give many families special Smiles as they go through their difficult and ‘roller coaster’ of a journey.
We support other charities and service providers which provide respite or end of life care for people with cancer, or, sadly as was done for Harry, look after them in their special bedrooms after they have passed away. It may also support community nurses or hospitals needing equipment in oncology/neurosurgery wards.
