A BUDDING entrepreneur aged just six spent the recent school holiday starting her own mini business.

Emilia Wilkinson spent the week making things out of papier mache and glue and paints to sell at her own ‘shop’ to family and friends. She got the idea after an enterprise week at her school, Rishton Methodists.

Emilia’s mum Megan said: “This was all her own idea and she put so much time and effort into it following the school’s enterprise week that she really enjoyed being apart of.

“She spent the whole week making things and she made £13.50.

“She invited her family to come to the shop were they also had a choice of buying cakes and biscuits.

“I am so impressed with her – she surprises me every day with her imagination.”
