Shaftesbury Seven-Year Old Launches Online Vegan Sweet Shop

Charlie Richardson has launched a vegan sweet business, VG Sweetie Store, in partnership with his mum, Emma Norris.

The 7-year-old, who attends St Andrews Primary in Fontmell Magna, says he started trading because he ‘needed a little bit of money’. Now he’s fulfilling online orders from his home on The Maltings.
