A KIND-hearted 11-year-old boy threw open the family garden at his Halesowen home to raise money for Birmingham Children’s Hospital, where he had been cared for as a baby.

Dylan Rushbury invited family and friends to the event in Timberdine Close and raised £270 as a thank you to the hospital.

He organised a raffle and a barbecue and asked visitors, who admired mum Eleanor’s flower beds, for a minimum £5 donation.
