Now called Liberty Retreat, the business was set up five years ago by Cerstie Clarkson. Trade has built up to such an extent that she has now been able to move to bigger premises and extend the business.

Meanwhile, single mothers Lisa Vodros and Tammy Hollis have turned their hand to business, setting up their venture Lotus Beauty with help from the Prince’s Trust.
