A SELFLESS little boy has raised £50 for charities supporting NHS staff during the coronavirus crisis by auctioning his toys.

Six-year-old Henry, who will turn seven in May, had a clear out of his toys last weekend and decided to get rid of a quad bike, a bike, and a go kart.

Instead of selling them on to pocket the cash himself, the superstar youngster wanted to donate all the money he made to NHS Charities Together.

Mum, Debbie Garner, said: “We normally pass these toys on to other children.

“However, we put the items on social media to auction for friends and family to bid for the toy, with all money being donated to the NHS charities.

“We are so proud of him and his caring, thoughtful nature.”

Henry, a pupil at Mytham Primary School, Little Lever, has been going into school on some days as his mum is a key worker.

The children's epilepsy nurse is extremely proud of her son for his kind gesture, and posted about his success on Twitter.

NHS Charities Together replied to the post, thanking Henry for his kindness and the "amazing things" he was doing for the NHS Heroes.

Henry also posed up with a note addressed to the NHS, thanking them for “looking after all the poorly people” and hoping staff stayed safe.

Last week, the primary school hosted a fundraiser with a twist, asking children to wear their school uniform and donate to the NHS Charities Together fund.

The Uniform Day replaced the school's usual non-uniform festivities, and saw children across the borough dusting off their regular school wear, donning the uniform of their parents, or even dressing up as key workers.

Pupils at home, and the children of key workers who are still attending classes, all took part, sending in their uniform pictures alongside messages of support for key workers.
