I was really proud to be nominated for Families Online Homepreneurof the Year 2016, a competition to find the UK for the most inspiring homepreneurs.  I reached the final 7, which was amazing and huge thanks to the people who voted for me.

In 2017 Thumbsie® was a finalist in two categories in the Best Business Women– Best Online Business and Best Retail/Consumer Business. I was delighted to be picked from hundreds of great entries throughout the UK.

Debbie Gilbert, organiser of The Best Business Women Awards said ‘To be a finalist is a major achievement. Finalists have been selected for their business acumen, determination, creativity and tenacity. Over 80% of start-ups fail in the first 3 years and all our finalists are all shining examples of being successful entrepreneurs who have proved their success to our judges.’

One mum on Facebook wrote, “You totally deserve it! The difference you made to my daughter’s life, I’ll never forget it. x” and another “WOW well done, your product is amazing”.

In November 2017 Thumbsie Ltd was awarded “Highly Commended” in the s Star Business Awards for Best Online Business operating in the Aylesbury Vale.

In 2018 Thumbsie Ltd reached the finals of National The Small Awards in the Digital Star Category.  These awards target the whole UK small business sector, focusing on businesses often overlooked by other awards.

Also in 2018 Thumbsie Ltd again reached the finals in The Best Business Women Awards for Best Retail/Consumer Business. Debbie Gilbert, organiser said ‘ The standard of our finalists is exceptionally high. We are delighted to receive entries from female entrepreneurs from throughout the UK, from women who are real trailblazers in their industry. This is a tough competition judged by business experts. To be a finalist is a major achievement.

In March 2019 we were delighted that Thumbsie® has found recognition north of the border in Scotland and has been shortlisted in the Scottish Dental Awards 2019 for Innovation Award. This award recognises those individuals, teams and organisations who are pushing the boundaries of the dental profession.

I am really grateful to everyone who voted for me and supported me with these awards and I hope to be able to continue to report success from this National stage.
