CHARLIE SIMPSON - the seven year-old boy from Fulham whose bike ride for Haiti inspired donations of over £200k - has been nominated for a Pride in our People award.
Charlie stole millions of hearts after he decided to ride a bike round South Park and raise what he thought would be a modest amount for victims of the terrible earthquake which struck in January. But his gesture soon turned into a global phenomenon which raised interest and cash from thousands of people around the world.
He was turned into an overnight celebrity which left his parents, Dan, 37, and Leonora, 35, in a state of disbelief.
Charlie, who has a sister, Alice, six, was, like millions of others, moved to act after he saw images of the the horrific devastation on TV.
He asked his parents if he could do the ride and they agreed, setting up a JustGiving page.
Within hours the interest had started to snowball, with newspapers and TV crews all sensing they had a wonderful story on their hands.
Celebrities like Simon Cowell dipped into their pockets and the donations soon spiralled, with Charlie's TV appearances helping to pushing the final total past the £200k mark.
