Harry Brinkworth 11, of Chesterfield, Derbyshire, received hundreds of birthday cards from strangers. December 07 2021. See SWNS story SWLEcards. Hundreds of well-wishers have swamped a 10-year-old autistic boy with cards after he was left upset when his classmates snubbed his birthday party invitations. Hannah Brinkworth, 31, asked strangers to send her son Harry a card after cruel parents had told their kids not to attend his birthday bash “because they don't like him”. Today (Tues), he was showered with almost 300 cards from generous well-wishers for his 11th birthday, with hundreds more expected to follow. Hannah said that Harry was “so excited” to read all the messages of support this morning (Tues) from places as far away as Dubai, New Zealand and Canada.
