IT’S official - Sheldon schoolboy Harry Moseley is officially Britain’s kindest kid.

Last week we reported that the nine-year-old had made it through to the finals of a national competition and been invited to 10, Downing Street.

And on Wednesday morning, he was surprised by camera crews in the middle of a school assembly and told he was the overall winner.

For his prize, the youngster will receive £1,000 pocket money and another £1,000 to give to a charity of his choice.

Proud mum Georgina - who nominated Harry for the award - said that her son had been “completely shocked” by the news.

Harry, who was diagnosed with cancer in 2007, has raised more than £10,000 for Brain Tumour UK. As part of his extraordinary venture, he has given talks, organised charity events and sold charity bracelets.

During his recent visit to Number 10, Harry managed to sell two of the bracelets to Prime Minister Gordon Brown. And Downing Street were so impressed with the idea that they ordered 70 more - so who knows which world leader might be wearing one next.

Now in its second year, the Kindest Kids competition is run by Five News and the Charities Aid Foundation.
