OXFORDSHIRE has a new business entrepreneur in the form of five-year-old Alice Bullivant.

The Bicester girl is supporting NHS staff at the John Radcliffe Hospital by selling cupcakes.

However, as she is isolating, she hit a wall when it came to finding customers.

The enterprising youngster decided to use the only customers she could find - her parents and big sister - and charged them £5 a cupcake.

Alice's dad, Stephen Bullivant, shared the story with friends on Facebook, with Alice now raising over £60 so far for Oxford Hospitals Charity.

The family have first-hand experience of the hospital because Alice's little brother, Francis, two, was born with a severe congenital birth defect and has spent time in intensive care.

Alice has also been to the John Radcliffe - for a broken arm, and when she got Lego stuck up her nose.

Sarah Vaccari, from Oxford Hospitals Charity, said: "Alice is one of hundreds of people making donations and fundraising for Oxford Hospitals Charity to help NHS staff and our patients during the current situation.

"Her story really touched us, how wonderful that a five-year-old is thinking of others and shows such entrepreneurial spirit.

"We are incredibly grateful to all those, like Alice, who are finding creative ways to show they care."

Anyone who mentions 'Alice's cupcakes' when they donate at hospitalcharity.co.uk/staffsupport can also request a copy of cupcake drawings she and her sister are making.

The Oxford Mail is also running a campaign to raise money for the Oxford Hospitals Charity.
