BUSINESS BACKED: Apprentice star backs Bushey woman’s inspirational business

 Published on: 15th August 2021   |   By: Dean Shaw   |   Category: Uncategorized

A terminally-ill woman from Bushey has had her business backed by an entrepreneur who stars in BBC’s The Apprentice.

Bushey businesswoman Jeannie Donnelly, 53, had a visit from Linda Plant who often features in the final interview stage of each series of the hit BBC show. 

Linda is famous for giving businessmen and women a tough time as she critiques their business ventures. However, the Bushey woman’s business, called Jeannie Beanie, was given a glowing endorsement by Linda. 

Jeannie Beanie, which was set up during lockdown after Jeannie was diagnosed with terminal breast cancer, makes 100 per cent bamboo beanie hats for people who lose their hair while going through chemotherapy.

Linda offered Jeannie business expertise and said others should help and support Jeannie and her eco-friendly hats.

Linda, who was speaking in a video on social media, said: “Your story is a story that people should support and promote – you’re selling an item which is nice and very wearable, and part of the profit is going to charity.

“I’m happy to come onto anything with you to help you and talk like I am now – you’ve got my support!”

Jeannie said: “It has been my life work to get something out there. I’m terminal they say, but I believe you live every day for every day – it’s all about mindset. Stay positive and live your best life.”
