A six-year-old Downham pupil received a heart warming letter and gift after deciding to donate his pocket money to a policing charity.

Thomas Lewis, of the Nelson Academy, sent the funds to the Thames Valley Benevolent Fund in memory of Berkshire policeman Andrew Harper, who was killed in August 2019 at the age of 28.

The charity seeks to support serving and retired officers and their families.

Thomas, who has expressed an interest in becoming a policeman himself, received a letter and a teddy bear from deputy chief constable Jason Hogg thanking him for his generosity.

The letter, which was addressed to Thomas, said: "I was informed that you donated your pocket money in memory of PC Andrew Harper. This was a very kind thing to do.

"I do not usually do this, but on this occasion and as a thank you for being such a kind young man, I have decided to send you a Thames Valley Police bear, which I hope that you will love.

Your donation is greatly appreciated and will be added to the funds, which assist both serving and retired officers, and their families."
