Women in Business Award

The Inspire Women Awards celebrate the huge wealth of outstanding contribution women have made in the North west region, as well as enabling award winners to grow and share their experiences with others in the community committing a few hours of their time to one of the chosen charities.

Needless to say, not just for the presentation of this award, last year was certainly a year to remember for us all. So, after all the worry and concern of keeping a business alive throughout all the chaos, receiving the award was a very pleasant distraction. Unfortunately, though, because of the COVID restrictions, the presentation night couldn’t go ahead. This was a big disappointment for me, as the awards were due to be presented by no other than Emmerdale and Strictly Come Dancing star, Kelvin Fletcher (swoon).

However, all was not lost and I was over the moon to have Kelvin all to myself when he came to the shop and presented my award in person – sorry ladies!
