A REDDITCH woman has scooped a £1,000 business scholarship to help launch her clothing website for taller women.
Helen Bachelor's idea to create a central point to direct buyers to retailers selling clothes for taller women caught the eye of the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB).
The Webheath resident, who is 5ft 9ins, is in the third year of a business management and accountancy degree at the University of Worcester and is the first student from the university to receive the award.
The 20-year-old said: "I'm fairly tall and have always struggled to find clothes. I found a gap in the market for a website where people like me could go.
"This money will really help me get the business off the ground."
Judi Brazkiewicz, chairman of FSB Worcestershire, said: "Helen and the FSB are now working together on a number of ideas so we are sure to hear more about her. She is truly inspiring."
