In a letter to Mills Johnson said: "Well done and thank you for all you have achieved for our wonderful NHS."

The young boys family said: 'We’ve been utterly overwhelmed not only by the amount of money given but by the lovely messages of support and encouragement left on his Just Giving page."

Johnson's award has been in operation for six years as of last month, starting in April 2014. 

The award recognises those who are making an outstanding difference where they live.
