Mum traded poverty and despair for real success
"I almost can't believe my life has changed so much in just two years."
- Claire Hutchinson, entrepreneur/recycler
Darlington, England, UK - Mum-of-three Claire Hutchinson was at rock bottom. Jobless for eight months, no prospect of work and with only a couple of quid in her purse to try to feed her young children.
But now she's running her own business recycling clothes, earning a decent living and giving a substantial chunk of her turnover to a local children's charity ... And she's up for a prestigious award, which recognises her achievements and hard work.
