COUNTRYSIDE ALLIANCE RURAL HERO'S ANNOUNCED 30TH MARCH 2011
Hunter Rural Hero (age 15 and under) Tom and Lottie Sweet, Lampeter, Ceredigion. “This Award is being given to two rather than one heroes because we could not choose between them. Our heroes are also from the same family, so there must be something in the water in the Lampeter area!
Lottie, is an 11 year old with an entrepreneurial flair that most people in this room would love to match. Lottie saved up for three years to realise her ambition of owning reindeer. Having saved up for two reindeer calves she now hires them out for events and finds they cause a stir at food and craft fairs. Lottie is now looking for sponsorship in order to buy a horsebox, showing that her company, "Sweet Deer", is only the beginning of her plans.
Meanwhile, Lottie's brother, Tom Sweet is 15 and took the exceptional step of setting up his own herb and spice business at the age 12 to help him build up his confidence. Tom works incredibly hard to supply more and more shops within Wales and beyond and is about to launch his own curry kits. Tom has already received a Blue Peter badge but now he is also a Countryside Alliance Rural Hero.
Congratulations to Tom and Lottie, our Rural Heroes of 2010, for your hard work, your love of the countryside and your great ideas.”
Based in West Wales, Sweet Deer provides reindeer for your special event, whether it's a Christmas Fair, birthday party, wedding, photoshoot or television work.
