On Friday 24th January Team Henry attended AFL Hyperscale, Milton Keynes and were presented with a cheque for £2,331.36 to fund The Trust car for 12 months. The “Henry Mobile” as we call it, allows Team Henry to transport families to and from hospital appointments, deliver care packs, arts and crafts packs, toys, games and other donations to Hospitals and continue to spread ‘Henry’s Happiness’.

Vicky, Content Manager from AFL Hyperscale said “It is such a pleasure to be able to award this grant to the Henry Allen Trust. They do such amazing work raising awareness of childhood cancers in our local community and beyond, and the trust car helps them achieve this – we’re proud to be able to contribute to such a fantastic cause.”

About the Henry Allen Trust:

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.
