We seem to be on a winning streak this month, with awards almost coming out of our ears! And it's all down to two of our most amazing franchisees, both of whom go above and beyond to make sure that every child they teach has a magical experience, while learning and gaining new skills along the way. Both have children of their own, and run their own businesses singlehandedly, which makes their achievements all the more amazing.
Christine Hudson, from Huddersfield, was anonymously entered into the 2018 Yorkshire And The Humber Enterprise Awards. To this day she doesn't know who nominated her, though is very glad they did, because just this month she was awarded, 'Best Children's Developmental Recreation Programme 2018'. The awards, 'recognise the small to medium companies that have a positive impact on their customers in one of England’s most instrumental economic regions', and because they operate a merit-based judging system (each business in each category, no matter what their size, can be judged fairly) makes this big win for Christine's small business even more meaningful.
And then we heard a drum roll from down under, as not only did our brilliant Master Franchisee Amanda Plumridge from Australia make it as a finalist for Best Kids Activity category in this year's What's On 4 Australia, she was also given an honorable mention in the category, 'Best Kids Activity' AND 'Best Party Industry' Leader of The Year!
Huge congratulations to both Christine and Amanda - cheers, bottoms up, well done, good work - we think you're amazing!
Aw shucks :)
