Entrepreneurship Pupils Tickled Pink as Female Entrepreneurs

With the aim of raising the aspirations of young women, the Pink Passion Party, sponsored by Women in Business and No

Limits, celebrated female entrepreneurship by not only acknowledging the achievements of local women but also encouraging the Academy’s female population to set up their very own pink enterprise businesses to raise funds for the charity – Tickled Pink.

As well as presentations from local female entrepreneurs (including Wendy Bowers, the Women’s Enterprise Representative for the board of the NWDA) on how to make ideas happen, the event featured a ‘hot-to-trot’ fashion show and will be attended by 300 local female guests, including Year 5-11 students from nearby schools, and their parents. All were treated to an exclusive preview of a DVD created by DACA in celebration of Darwen’s female enterprise community.
