Our son, Harry Mills, died from
Meningitis on Thursday the 26th of April 2007 at the age of 11
years. A much loved boy, Harry always had a beaming smile on his
face and limitless enthusiasm for sport and life itself. Our family;
myself Richard, my wife Judi, daughters Marie and Jenny and son
George are devastated by his loss. Harry’s short life was
extinguished in a single day by this terrible disease.
Harry seems to have touched so many people. The love and friendship that
was his hallmark lives on after his death. It is some comfort to
know that through organ donation Harry will have helped others and
Vaccine Rollout - Meningitis Awareness Week starts 14th
The Mills are pleased to be part of Meningitis Awareness week because vaccines commenced rollout on 1st September.
All who have toiled to raise funds in memory of Harry for Meningitis Research can be very proud for all that has been achieved. Inspired by Harry it is a great legacy for him. Our children and their children will be safer with many lives saved and the horror of damaged lives prevented. Families will be spared the devastation of losing loved ones. Thanks to you all for your support.

Rugby and Cricket, Tennis, Athletics and Cross Country, sport was
Harry’s life. He played football and rugby for John Hampden Grammar
school, Rugby for Marlow RUFC, Cricket for Marlow Park, football for
Holy Trinity Juniors Football club and Tennis with Marlow Tennis
At times in between he could be found scoring a try in the
lounge at the Mills residence in Marlow, scoring a goal between the
TV and Hi-Fi in the kitchen or beating his dad at table tennis or
cricket in the garden. Ability and sportsmanship earned Harry a
place on the Talented and Gifted Register (government initiative) at
John Hampden School.
The family would like to express our
thanks to everyone that has donated to the Meningitis Research
Foundation and Youth Sports Trust charities. Your generosity and
expression of love for Harry is beyond words. We would also like to
thank everyone for their messages of support. Friends have assisted
in many different ways from providing meals on wheels, helping
with the funeral, raising funds or simply keeping in contact.
Many people and organisations are also
raising money through sponsorship and dedicating events to Harry.
