Pictured Emma Sheard and son Oscar Sheard. Meet the little boy who has turned into Father Christmas to collect presents for children less fortunate than him - who says giving presents "is far better" than receiving them. See SWNS story SWSMsanta. Oscar Sheard, 10, used his pocket money to buy gifts for children who may not otherwise receive them and has now collected just under 100 presents thanks to donations from family and friends. His mum, Emma, 42, was dreading the moment her youngest Oscar would no longer believe in the magic of Father Christmas. But she was amazed when her son decided he wanted to become Father Christmas himself and donate gifts to the Salvation Army. Oscar has collected presents including books, crayons, jigsaws and toys to hand over to the charity during the first week of December. His parents, Emma and Dave, 48, who run a gas engineering business, are very proud of their little boy and hope his actions inspires others to donate a gift to someone less fortunate this Christmas.
