The legacy of inspirational schoolboy Harry Moseley was shining as a further appeal involving a Guinness World Record attempt in his name was unveiled.
Schoolchildren, shoppers and staff from Martineau Place will join Harry’s mum Georgina as they try to build the largest bracelet ever in honour of the inspirational fundraiser.
The plan is to ultimately build a big enough bracelet to wrap around the shopping centre, which is home to more than 30 retailers in the city centre.
Harry, from Sheldon, died on October 8, 2011 in his mother’s arms after a four-year battle with a brain tumour.
He had been in a coma at Birmingham Children’s Hospital for three months after the tumour grew by 50 per cent and he underwent major brain surgery.
Despite his health deteriorating, the 11-year-old raised half-a-million pounds for Cancer Research UK through his campaign Help Harry Help Others by making bracelets.
His family have now continued his hard work, funding vital research and supporting families in financial hardship so they can focus on their loved one.
The charity also gives back to the next generation of children by offering free workshops and schemes that help children tap into their own passions in life, and supports services providing end of life care, including hospices and nurses in the community.
