A Brighouse entrepreneur is celebrating the success of the first of her local Mum2Mum Markets, where nearly new baby clothes and equipment are sold by parents to other families.

Kate Greenway is the local franchisee of the company, which secured a £35,000 investment on Dragons’ Den from Deborah Meaden.

The September sale at Lightcliffe Academy Sports Centre drew over 300 buyers - 100 in the first five minutes - with some queuing for half an hour beforehand to get the best bargains.

Kate said: “Buyers can source great quality secondhand goods at a fraction of the high street price and sellers keep 100 per cent of their profits. Our top seller mum made £550 selling at a Mum2Mum Market.”

The next local market takes place at Sowerby Bridge High School on Saturday, October 8 from 1.15pm. Admission costs £2.
