What does The Operation Henry Trust Do?
The Operation Henry Trust offers support to pancreatic cancer sufferers and their families throughout the UK where there are limited resources. The Charity helps to reduce stress, trauma, and financial anxieties, and we do this by paying for goods or services on your behalf.
What can we help with?
We tend to help in four main areas - transport, financial assistance, home maintenance and respite breaks, however we understand that everyone’s needs are different, so we will contact each person individually to see where help is needed most.
How much can we give?
How much you receive will vary depending on your individual situation and needs, but the maximum amount paid would be £500. Unfortunately, we are unable to give cheques directly to individuals.
How Do I apply?
We aim to make our application process as simple as possible. Fill in the application form, highlighting where you need help and why, before returning the completed form to the Operation Henry office. A member of the Operation Henry team will then get in touch with you.
Operation Henry’s History
The charity was created in 2001, by David P. Snelling. David’s father died of pancreatic cancer at the age of 62. At that point David committed himself to create a registered charity which would provide benefits to those diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, as well as raising awareness of the disease. Ahead of the charity being fomally established, David undertook a 2000km trek across France and Spain accompanied by Henry the Hinny. Thus, Operation Henry was created.
