A parliamentary candidate became an apprentice for the day when she helped out local businesses by serving customers and washing the pots.
Andrea Jenkyns, the Conservative Party’s Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Morley and Outwood became an apprentice as part of Small Business Saturday, a government initiative which celebrates community businesses. Miss Jenkyns volunteered at Sue’s Kitchen and Shake Latte, and Roll on Saturday, and Janet Best Hair earlier in the week. “I was brought up in a family with an entrepreneurial spirit,” she said. “My dad was a lorry driver who went on to have his own transport company and then a small bedroom furniture manufacturing business, which I became involved with from the age of 12. “I understand the hard work and multi-tasking that is needed in running a small business and so I wanted to get stuck in and do all I could to support Small Business Saturday.” Shake, Latte and Roll owner David Holliday said that it had been great to have some “hands on help” from Miss Jenkyns.
