Caring Sheldon big brother receives Harryz Young Starz Award

Sarah Mason 1st Sep, 2017

AN ‘AMAZING’ big brother has been handed the prestigious Harryz Young Starz Award Best Friend Award.

Sean Murphy was surprised by Harry’s mum and Help Harry Help Others (HHHO) founder Georgie Moseley and Sarah Shirley from sponsors Hogarths Hotel when he was handed the fourth 2017 award.

Sean was nominated for the award by his teacher for all he does for his little brother Hugh who has a heart condition which causes him to stop breathing.

Sean, who is 14 months older than seven-year-old Hugh, has volunteered to do CPR, sets up tube feeds for Hugh, plays with him, fetches things and reads sensory stories with him.

And every night Sean climbs into bed to comfort Hugh and cuddle him to say goodnight.

Georgie said: “We are extremely proud of Sean.

“He is a remarkable young boy.

“Sean adores Hugh and is a huge support to his family helping with Hugh continually.

“Due to his brothers illness Sean often has to take a back seat and yet he still shows such love, care and compassion for his little brother and is always there to offer him support.

“I am delighted that Sean has won this award and we very much look forward to welcoming him to the celebration lunch for all the winners at Hogarths Hotel in December where we can celebrate their success.”

Each month an award will be handed out for one of the eight categories.

The winners from each category, including Sean, will be invited to an Awards Ceremony at Hogarths Hotel and Restaurant in December, where one lucky winner will receive the coveted Harry’z Young Star Award.

HHHO was the creation of inspirational Sheldon youngster Harry Moseley, who died in 2011 at the age of just 11 after a four-year battle with a brain tumour.

The awards were launched in 2014 by Georgie, who selflessly raised over £750,000 through his legendary bracelet campaign before he passing away aged eleven.

The awards were put on ice for two years – but now they are back and set to celebrate inspirational children – with the support of The Observer and the help of Hogarths Hotel in Dorridge.

Throughout September HHHO will be focusing on the Charity Award.

The award celebrates an individual who has had a significant impact on any charitable organisation.

This is not just about monies raised but also their contribution to a good cause. If you know someone that has made an outstanding contribution to charity this is the award for them.

The deadline for applications is September 30.

If you know someone who fits this category, or any of the others, nominate them by emailing enquiries@hhho.org.uk or call 0121 783 5407 to request an application form.
