The mother of a Birmingham boy who raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for charity before dying of brain cancer, has carried the Olympic Torch in his honour.

Georgina Moseley, mother of Harry, ran with the Torch past the home of Chelsea Football Club in London on the eve of the games.

Cheered on by the crowd, Georgina said she did it for the one person who could not be there today.

It was an incredible atmosphere, the best place for Harry's bracelet was on the Torch and that's what he deserves. It's an amazing achievement for all that Harry created and helped others and it's just a shame he couldn't be there today.

Georgina left Birmingham early this morning on a coach with the face of son, Harry, and his charity on the side.

Harry made plenty of celebrity friends through his charity work and it was footballer John Terry who nominated him to carry the Torch.

While Harry never got the chance to carry the Torch for himself, through events like today and ongoing charity work, his family are keeping his dreams going.
