An Arnside businesswoman impressed a panel of judges to reach the final of a national competition.
Claudia Carillo, who runs the Natural Health, Hair and Beauty Clinic on Silverdale Road, received an anonymous nomination for the ‘small business of the year’ category at the Enterprise Vision Awards (EVAs).
The qualified nurse will be among the finalists at an awards night at Blackpool’s Hilton on October 4.
Claudia, who is also a massage therapist and biomedical practitioner, said: “I was really taken aback to be nominated, but to get this far is fantastic recognition of my achievements as well as the hard work of the team that I work with at the clinic in Arnside.
“Now I just have to keep my fingers crossed.”
The EVAs are open to businesswomen from the North West.
