Henry Dancer Days
Henry Dancer Days (HDD) uses storytelling and grants to improve the lives of children affected by cancer. HDD’s multi-award winning storytelling uses professionals to make stories come to life for children in the Great North Children’s Hospital in Newcastle. The programme is expanding to other UK hospitals. HDD also has a grants programme to improve the quality of for children specifically with bone cancer. The grants supports 80% of all UK families currently affected (363 families), and aims to reach 100% of all families affected by 2020. A grant from The Fore will enable the founder to move from front-line work to focus on scaling and strategy. This will develop the charity’s ability to expand to new hospitals around the UK.
