We have recently been featured in the Manchester Evening news about our plan to franchise bumps and bashes. See extract below to read the full story click on the link at the bottom of this page.
A ‘mumpreneur’ who educates parents about first aid for infants is expanding her business via a franchise model this year. Bumps and Bashes, Sale, which was set up by Kate Aidley three years ago, covers all aspects of first aid trading for parents. This includes treating burns, scalds, teaching what to do when a child is choking and awareness of the initial signs of meningitis, all during a three hour session. Kate, a qualified first aid trainer and assessor, teaches groups of parents at their homes or in community centres and also holds sessions at schools and nurseries for both teachers and parents. She says the business has been so successful with regular bookings that she wants to start her own franchise. The mother-of-two said: “People often think this is a franchise business when they hear about it but it’s something that I set up on my own when I saw there was a market for training parents about first aid. “I have been approached by people who want to start doing this themselves and it’s something that I want to do this year.”
