Oscar Newton has been delivering to those in need!

Local Hero

OSCAR has decided to support people in need in his local village during lockdown. Every day, the Year 8 pupil at Moulsford Prep arrives at the village shop in Ewelme and delivers up to 45 newspapers, as well as running errands and picking up shopping for people who can’t get out. So far, he has delivered over 550 papers – all while still doing his home-schooling.

The last few weeks have been difficult for everyone in our communities, especially those who are elderly or vulnerable.  However, Oscar Newton in Year 8 decided to do something to support the people in his local village who are in need.  Each morning he has presented himself to the Ewelme village shop at 9 o’clock on his bike and delivered up to 45 newspapers a day to people in the village who are ‘staying at home’. Not only has he delivered papers but he has also run errands for them and picked up shopping.  He has delivered over 550 papers already!

During the week when Oscar is balancing school work with his community work, he manages to keep up with lessons by catching up in his break times.

The manager of the village shop wrote to the Headmaster of our school Moulsford Prep, Ben Beardmore-Gray to say, “Oscar is a great credit to himself, his family and the school. His reliability, thoughtfulness and ability to think on his feet is very impressive for his age and he has handled all the issues associated with delivery admirably.”
