The Harry Johnson Trust provides support for children and teens diagnosed with cancer and their families. Working closely with the children’s oncology team in Telford, the Shropshire charity is run entirely by volunteers and 100% of the money raised goes to fund their projects.

The Harry Johnson Trust was established in 2014, following the death of seven year old Harry in July of that year. Harry died following a nine month fight with Double Hit Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. Harry’s parents, Sally and Stephen, established the trust to help and support other children and teenagers who receive care from the Oncology Team at The Princess Royal Hospital. The Shropshire charity works alongside the hospital ward, ensuring the right young person gets the right help at the right time.

 

Thanks to the volunteering efforts of the trust members, all of the donations to the charity go towards:


  • Hampers with comfort items a family might find useful in the first few days spent in hospital.
  • Soft fleece bedding for children who have begun to lose hair from chemotherapy.
  • Memory quilts or bears handmade from the favourite clothes of a child if they sadly pass away from cancer.
  • Holidays and fun outings for families struggling with a diagnosis.
  • Supershoes, incredible customised pairs of shoes as a gift for the child or young person.
  • Other mini projects, such as gift cards for the hospital café, books, toys and games, and more.
  • The Beads of Courage programme which raises awareness of childhood cancer.


If you would like to refer a child with cancer to the charity for support, the child must:

 

  • be under 18 when they are first referred.
  • live in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin or Mid Wales.
  • receive care or treatment, or some of their care and treatment, at The Princess Royal Hospital in Telford.
  • have had a diagnosis of a form of childhood cancer.
