Party is bouncing success

Families partied together at a county trampoline park as they celebrated the fourth anniversary of the Harry Johnson Trust. Supporters who have helped raised thousands of pounds for the trust in memory of seven-year-old Harry Johnson, who died of cancer four years ago, turned out for a complimentary bounce party at Jump In Shrewsbury to mark the anniversary.

Founder of the charity Harry’s mum Sally Johnson says, “We all had a brilliant night – we had never trampolined as a family before but we didn’t stop laughing all night. We had Harry’s friends from nursery support us, along with pupils I used to teach before Harry was ill who are now in secondary school.”

The charity was set up in 2014 after the seven-year-old lost his battle with double-hit non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, following gruelling treatment at the oncology ward at Telford’s Princess Royal Hospital. During his time there, his parents vowed to help others in the same position and just months after he passed away, they launched the Harry Johnson Trust, which has since helped families across Shropshire and beyond.
