A creative little boy from Crick who battled meningitis is inviting people to vote for him in a competition,

Harley Tull, four, has been shortlisted in a competition to design a Christmas card for Birmingham Children’s Hospital.

His mother, Toni, said: “Harley fell ill with meningitis when he was only seven months old.

“Despite being really poorly, he was a little warrior and remained smiley. He got amazing medical care, fought the disease and has no lasting effects of the horrible illness.”

Harley’s family have raised money for the hospital to recognise the wonderful work they do.

“I am a very proud mum,” added Toni.

“Harley’s artwork has been shortlisted along with three other finalists and people are being invited to vote for their favourite entry.

“The two designs receiving the most votes will feature on the 2020 Birmingham Children’s Hospital Christmas card.”
