Children Franchise Wins Award


Special mention to The Creation Station, the children franchise we mentioned last week was up for award.

Well, turns out that the founder, Sarah Cressall, triumphed at the Leicestershire Women of Achievement of Awards, winning the Business Woman of the Year accolade.

The Creation Station provides hands-on art and craft exploration sessions for young children, whose imaginations can safely run riot using a wide range of materials, tools and ideas.

The programme received national recognition in 2008 when the ‘Exploration & Discovery’ sessions achieved the Gold standard in the Practical Pre-School Awards.

The mother of two proudly received the latest award in a ceremony at the Walkers Stadium in Leicester late last month.

Said Sarah:

“I felt honoured to be nominated for the awards by the team at Creative Leicestershire and was thrilled to be named one of the three finalists in the Business Woman of the Year category.

"To be awarded the title was absolutely wonderful and a real privilege.” 

Congratulations, Sarah.
