But he has not been able to visit for a year because of the pandemic.

So staff at their local branch sent the uniform, badge and a toy lorry to show they had not forgotten their star customer.

He uses them to play in his pretend Poundland shop.

Gift shop owner Melanie said: “They’ve gone above and beyond just to put a smile on his face.

"It just shows there is still some kindness left in the world.”

Staff at the shop in Lowestoft, Suffolk, have got to know Harry well over the past few years.
