An enterprising Runcorn woman who inspired others with her positive attitude, is to have a market stall as part of Love Your Local Market 2014.
Laura Green, aged 27, of Eanleywood Lane, Norton, launched a jewellery business in 2010 – using her talent for spotting trends.
You can meet her next month as her stall, Serendipity, will be at Widnes Market on Friday 16 May and Sat 17 May.
She already travels to exhibitions across the country and has created quite a following – despite having Down’s Syndrome.
Her fame spread as far as London and even got a mention in the House of Commons, as an example to all. Any profits go straight back into her business.
She said: “I can’t wait for people to see what I have on my stall. I am sure there is something for all ages and tastes.
“I love what I do and hope others will follow my example. You can achieve so much, even with a disability.”
Laura developed her fashion business with help from The Princes Trust and Halton Speakout, a which supports young people with learning difficulties.
She is now one of the ambassadors for disabilities in the UK and speaks at events around the country sharing her success story and inspiring people to reach out and work hard to achieve the things they want to.
She said: “I help people to see the ability and not the disability. Together we can all brake down barriers.”
Laura was recently nominated for the Morgan Foundation Young Entrepreneur Award and was in the top 5 out of thousands of people and has now taken on an assistant.
Halton Borough Council Market Manager, Ian Goodall, said: “Laura is an inspiration. And it shows what a wealth of enterprising talent we have in the area.”
