The charity was set up in memory of 12 year old Henry Dancer by his Mum, Jane.

Henry lost his life to Osteosarcoma in 2010 after a year of treatment and pain.

We’re sure he’d be proud of his legacy!

Henry Dancer Days is proud to bring a strong team of individuals together, each of whom have unique skills in order for us to achieve our charitable aims and objectives.

Our effective leadership, management and delivery of our services for the benefit of our beneficiaries is made possible by our team of staff and volunteers. Here’s some of them for you to meet;
