Birmingham - UK's kindest kid is charity champ
A nine-year-old Birmingham schoolboy has been named Britain's Kindest Kid.
Harry Moseley, who has an inoperable brain tumour, raised nearly #163;15,000 for the charity Brain Tumour UK by making and selling beaded bracelets, and was awarded the title as part of an annual competition run by the Charities Aid Foundation and Channel Five News.
Harry, who is a pupil at Blakenhale Junior School, decided to raise money to help Robert Harley, a 55-year-old friend he had met during radiotherapy sessions. Four weeks into the campaign, Mr Harley died.
The nine-year-old has persuaded 30 different shops across the Midlands to sell his #163;2 bracelets and has visited several local primary schools, delivering a PowerPoint presentation to pupils and encouraging them to set up bracelet-making clubs.
He was presented with #163;1,000 pocket money, and a further #163;1,000 to give to the charity of his choice. AB
