More accolades for north Lancs and south Cumbria Kidz charity
1:55pm Thursday 10th October 2013 in News
THE founders of the disabled children’s charity Unique Kidz and Co are celebrating this week by adding two more awards to their growing collection of accolades.
Jane Halpin, of Bolton-le-Sands, and Denise Armer, from Warton, picked up the Best Supporting Business gong in the national Mumpreneur Awards held in Birmingham - and just days later they shared the Inspirational Woman of the Year title at the Enterprise Vision Awards.
Jane said: “We are absolutely delighted and honoured to have won these awards for our charity. Both myself and Denise experienced severe difficulties and barriers when trying to find suitable childcare to allow us to take up work opportunities and with a clear need from other parents with disabled children we decided to make a difference and open a childcare facility for disabled children ourselves.”
Denise said: “We are so proud of what we and the charity have achieved and winning the Mumpreneur and EVA Awards is true recognition of all the hard work. We couldn’t be happier!”
Unique Kidz and Co is the one of a very few providers in the area to offer after school and holiday childcare specifically for disabled children.
