A little boy from Sheffield has brought some festive cheer to homeless people – by donating money he received on his birthday to them.  

The youngster – named only as Lenny, of Hunter’s Bar – said he sees rough sleepers in the city centre all the time and wanted to use money he got on his fourth birthday to help others.
