Millwall midfielder Ben Thompson has given Bermondsey’s Harvey Brown’s new kit for the upcoming season.

Harvey has the rare Morquio syndrome, which stunts skeletal growth, leaving sufferers with weak bones, and a tendency to develop heart disease, and impaired vision and hearing – and supporting Millwall has been a great love of his.

He led the team out as their mascot in May’s play-off against Barnsley at Wembley stadium in front of thousands, winning over fans’ hearts.

The football club has played an important part in Harvey’s life as they supported a campaign to get him and 77 other children in the UK suffering from Morquio syndrome the vital medication Vimizim funded on the NHS.
