Captain Tom Moore has sent a message of congratulations to a thirteen-year-old boy, who's raised over £16,000 for East Anglia's Children's Hospices (EACH).

It's after Stuie Delf from Cambridgeshire, decided to run 5k every single day in May, to raise money for EACH, in memory of his nine-year-old brother Fraser, who sadly passed away at the charity's hospice in Milton on 17 January 2020.

Fraser had a rare condition called Coats plus syndrome, which affects multiple organs and can cause brain abnormalities that worsen over time, slow growth and result in seizures.

Stuie recently received praise from the duchesses of Cambridge and Cornwall for his efforts and has now been applauded by NHS fundraising hero Captain Tom.

Alongside his daughter Hannah Ingram-Moore and her two children Benji and Georgia, the quartet paid their respects to Stuie and his remarkable efforts, which you can see below:

Stuie was informed about the video through his mum Carla Self on Friday morning (26/06/20), who said:

“I woke Stuie up to show him. After having a few low days, it put a smile on his face.

"We couldn't believe they had gone to that effort to send us a video.”

Stuie, along with his mum Carla and dad Stuart, also spoke to the Duchesses of Cambridge and Cornwall over Zoom:

“We, as a family, felt truly honoured to be given the opportunity to have a Zoom call with both duchesses. We were all very nervous, which soon went as they put us at ease so quickly.”
