A thank you letter penned by six-year-old Harvey Hughes-Sharps captured the hearts of staff at a hospice that looked after his mum.
Harvey’s mum Rachel sadly lost her battle with cancer in December 2013.
Determined to give something back to the Hospice of the Good Shepherd, Harvey did chores to raise vital funds for them.
Then he sent a note to the hospice’s marketing and fundraising team along with a hand-painted jar full of coins.
He wrote: “I was really excited to raise money for the hospice.
“I wanted to say thank you for looking after my mum when she was poorly.
“I enjoy raising money for charities.”
Harvey took part in the Hospice of the Good Shepherd 5k Colour Fun Run on July 5 in memory of his mum.
The event, also known as the Happiest 5k on the Planet, involves participants being doused from head to toe in different colours along the route.
His fundraising isn’t just for the hospice.
Harvey has done a sponsored climb for Children in Need, and he and his best friend Aman Rayet also raised more than £100 for Save the Children by building a den.
The duo created the shelter out of reclaimed wood and a recycled builder’s bag in the back garden to help pay to provide a safe refuge for children with no place to call home.
