Want to join Allica Bank in making a difference? In 2022 we are raising money to benefit The Henry Allen Trust, and any donation or suggestions for fundraising will help make an impact.
In February 2012, Henry Allen was only two years old when he was diagnosed with Stage 4 High Risk, MYCN Amplified Neuroblastoma. Two years of painful treatments and surgeries couldn’t knock Henry down, his happiness and bravery throughout inspired everyone around him.
Henry changed the lives of so many and, before he passed away so sadly in October 2013, he insisted his parents continue his work. Henry’s wish to help children like him, became The Henry Allen Trust in February 2014. Since then, Henry’s Team has grown and been able to provide treats and wishes to families across the country as well as financial and counselling support.
The Henry Allen Trust’s aim is to provide benefits for the patients of children’s hospital oncology units:
• To help relieve sickness and preserve health by providing, or assisting in the provision of, equipment and facilities, recreation, services and ancillary to those provided by doctors for individuals and groups.
• To promote and protect physical and mental health through financial assistance, support, education, practical advice and counselling.
• To relieve the sickness of child oncology patients by offering respite through the provision of short breaks and holidays.
• To advance the education of the general public in relation to life threatening diseases and terminal illness in children, including the hope and encouragement that can be found through better understanding and survivors success stories.
We will be looking to raise as much as we can for The Henry Allen Trust this year. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much.
