Finalist: Kate Aidley: Bumps and Bashes When Sale mum Kate Aidley set up Bumps and Bashes in 2009 – a first aid training programme specifically for parents of babies and young children – little did she know just how rewarding it would be.
For not only was she realising her dream of running a successful business, but also a mother who attended one of classes was able to stop her daughter from choking because of what she’d learned.
Kate Gathercole has just held a first aid class in Timperley and was able to use what she had learned to dislodge the toast from one-year-old Gaby’s mouth by hitting her on the back to clear it.
It was a highlight for mum-of-two Kate Aidley from Fulmer Drive, Sale, above, who said: “There are many successes, but that is the biggest.”
Kate also enjoyed the experience of entering Messenger’s Business Accelerators.
“I felt it was a great experience and an exciting opportunity and it really helped me to focus and concentrate on what I need to do to grow my business.”
Kate offers classes for a variety of groups, schools and nurseries and also goes to people’s homes.
