The Henry Allen Trust is running its annual Easter Eggstravaganza appeal for the 8th year and they are appealing for the public’s help.
Every year Team Henry visit hospitals in our region delivering Easter eggs, confectionary, arts and crafts and games to children and their families spending Easter in hospital.
To facilitate this, the trust are looking for anyone who can help The Easter Bunny and Team Henry spread some Henry’s happiness by donating to their Easter Eggstravaganza.
This project sees people looking for local businesses, schools and individuals who would like to support them this Easter.
The Henry Allen Trust was founded in memory of Henry Allen who lost his battle to STAGE 4 HIGH RISK MYCN AMPLIFIED NEUROBLASTOMA, a childhood cancer in October 2013 to bring ‘happiness’ to children and families battling childhood cancer. Dawn, Mark and everyone involved with the trust have worked tirelessly to ensure no family is alone during their journey.
The Henry Allen Trust is there for these families from initial contact, all the way through the rest of their journey, be it treatment, remission or palliative/end of life care and beyond. The Trust do this by providing treats and wishes, financial assistance and emotional support to the families as well as holding a monthly THAT Support group where families come together to enjoy quality time with each other and share their experiences. The Henry Allen Trust also work with hospitals providing care packs, toys, arts and crafts, ward visits and even specialised equipment.
Ever year The Henry Allen Trust hold various events to FUNdraise vital funds to allow the trust to continue its work supporting children, teens, young adults and their families battling childhood cancer.
