The young boy called Harry ran the little shop near Rosebud Meadow in Worcestershire where he sold chicken eggs. But cold-hearted thieves have stolen his money box.

English auctioneer, Philip Serrell, posted an image of Harry on Twitter with the caption: “This is Harry – he is 5 and runs a little honesty shop near to my Saleroom.

“Someone has stolen his money and his stock.

“They will probably be too ashamed to return either but if they get to read this I hope it costs them a few nights sleep.”

The honesty shop asked for people to leave money in the pot for a box of six eggs.

Harry even accepted PayPal during the coronavirus pandemic.

After Mr Serrell posted the news, people have flocked to help the young entrepreneur.

Many people have offered to donate to Harry and his honesty shop.

One person wrote: “I don’t live near there but if there’s a way to buy some eggs and Harry can donate them to someone please let us know how we can pay.

“Also whoever did this is beyond contempt. Harry you are a star.”

Someone else urged Mr Serrell to tell Harry not all people are like that.

One said: “How heartbreaking, and what a super young chap.

“Just look at that handsome smile. I hope it doesn’t put him off.

“I’d come and buy something if it was nearer.

“If there is a way to send him something to buy, something for someone in need to show that people aren’t all mean.”

Many other people have condemned the atrocious theft.

Another called the thieves “lowlife” and said: “Hopefully the lowlife who has done this is aware that we all feel he is a despicable human being.

“Chin up Harry, there are lots of people that want your produce.”

Another hoped karma will “strike back at some stage”.

One said Harry’s entrepreneurial leanings should be encouraged despite the incident.

Someone else said: “Sadly some of today’s society don’t feel shame they don’t give a damn and certainly won’t lose sleep over it.

“They probably do this every day stealing from the innocent.

“Poor little chap, he has learnt sadly from a young age that not everyone is honest.

“I wish him well for the future.”
