LONDON: A five-year-old boy Kunchala Aneeshwar from Chittoor district, who lives in Manchester (United Kingdom) wanted to help people who are facing problems during COVID-19. The boy wanted to donate his piggy bank money but that was not enough, he wanted to raise funds on a larger scale.
In this process, a 100-year-old man named Sir Thomas Moor showed a way to the little kid. Sir Thomas Moor raised funds to provide treatment for the COVID-19 patients in the UK by walking 100 rounds around the circle.
