Woman attracts new customers from Australia in successful first year

A WOMAN who dreamed of owning her own business is celebrating a first successful year that has seen her gain customers from Australia.

Sue Wright, from Leverington, set-up Wright Cards with free help from business support organisation NWES from Norwich.

Wright’s sells hand-made greetings cards, wedding stationery and a number of specially crafted paper and card designs for special occasions.

“When I was made redundant last year I decided that I needed to set up Wright Cards and turn my hobby into a business,” she said.

“Since then it has been non-stop with orders from as far away as Australia.

“I’m my own boss now and I always have a smile on my face.”

She is set to unveil a new range of local village calendars to help raise money for St Leonard’s Church in Leverington as part of the nation’s Heritage Open Days this weekend.
