He admitted stealing the donations tin from Sophie’s Grill in Lowesmoor, Worcester on September 22 while staff were away from the till.

He was jailed for 18 weeks for the theft on September 25 after appearing at Kidderminster Magistrates Court and ordered to pay back £300 in compensation.

The charity box was in the grill to raise money for a mum's dying wishes but she had asked that it went towards an appeal to fund further treatment for Oscar, of Pitmaston Primary School.

His parents Olivia Saxelby and Jamie Lee were able to raise £500,000 to cover the costs of travelling to Singapore for expensive CAR-T cell therapy which is not available on the NHS.
