Lancaster four-year-old sells home-made bracelets for hospice and 'to buy sweeties to make doctors and nurses smile'
Little Arabella Wheatman may have only just started school but she's already showing smart business sense as well as a lot of kindness.
The four-year-old, from Lancaster, has been making rainbow friendship bracelets for her school pals, and has decided to donate any money she raises to St John's Hospice.
She also wants to buy sweets for doctors and nurses at the hospice to "make them smile again".
Arabella had just started in reception class at Burton Morewood School before it closed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Proud mum Katherine Wheatman said: "She’s been struggling to understand what’s going on. We decided to make her little classmates friendship bracelets.
"However, Arabella has now decided after her friends wanted to pay her to donate it to St John's Hospice.
"But first she wants to buy the nurses some sweets. She said: 'Mummy, sweeties make people happy and all the doctors and nurses are sad because of coronavirus. If we buy them some sweeties it’ll make them smile again'."
Arabella has already raised almost £400 for the hospice.
