Boy with incurable heart condition forfeits birthday presents to help Glasgow homeless

10-year-old altar server from St Augustine’s Church in Coatbridge has chosen to help the homeless on his birthday this year rather than receive gifts

Harry Spalding gave up birthday presents and instead provided warm clothing and hot food for homeless people in Glasgow on Saturday October 5.

Harry turned 10 on Wednesday October 9, and during the approach to his birthday, he decided that he wanted to help those less fortunate.

Harry’s mother, Anne Marie Spalding, said: “He said that he had everything he wanted and needed in life, so instead he wanted to help the homeless in lieu of gifts.

“He is a sensitive and thoughtful boy, and always puts others first.”
