For Finn Morris, the best thing about having a Nelson Weekly paper run is the income.
“I love it, I get the money and I’m able to buy stuff. I’m not begging my mum and dad all the time now.”
Nine-year-old Finn is the paper’s Deliverer of the Month and was nominated for his consistency on his local route.
He uses a trusty wagon to deliver to households on Toi Toi St, including the side streets – with some help from his parents.
“My mum does all the hills and dad helps me by pulling the wagon.”
Since starting the run in February this year Finn’s main purchase has been a new skateboard, and he is now saving up for something else.
Delivery manager Karl Hadfield says Finn certainly does a good job.
“He’s been great. He always delivers the paper on time and because he’s under 11 it’s good he can do it with parental help.”
For his efforts, Finn received a double-pass to Nelson’s State Cinemas, which he put to good use in the school holidays.
He took his babysitter Rose to see ‘Trolls World Tour’.
