The New Year is off to a great start as hundreds of COVID heroes are rewarded with gongs for their work during the pandemic.
Fundraisers like Tobias Wheeler, 11, appear alongside familiar expert advisors on the New Year’s Honors List.
The youngest person to be recorded at yesterday’s New Year’s homage said he was “crushed to pieces”.
Tobias Wheeler, 11, with cerebral palsy and autism, has been dubbed a captain after his hero, Captain Sir Tom Moore, inspired him to start fundraising during lockdowns.
He was awarded the OBE after raising more than £157,000 for the Paces School, where he was a student, and The Children Hospital Charity, in his hometown of Sheffield.
‘It is very surprising,’ said Tobias, ‘that the Queen has been so honored before.’
Max Woosi, 12, from Brownton in Devon, has raised more than £570,000 for North Devon Hospice by spending every night in a tent since March 28, 2020.
He was also awarded the Order of the British Empire.
He was inspired to help the hospice after the staff looked after close family friend Rick Abbott, 74, in the last days of his life.
The two young men are among hundreds of ordinary Britons who have been given gongs to do extraordinary things.
The biggest winner was magician Henry Lewis, 102, of Stanmore, north London, who is Honorary Vice President of the Magical Circle. He’s been performing characters since the age of eight.
He was called an MBE fundraiser and told The Sun, “I’m so proud, going strong, and still performing in my nursing home.
“The only complaint was that my offer was too short. He said of the honor, “I am so lucky to still be here to get it—they can’t leave it too late to hand it to me!”
