Amanda Marshall, the founder of 3 Donkeys Clothing, has been announced as a finalist for the South West region of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards. She’s in the Family Business Entrepreneur Of The Year category.
Based in Devon, 3 Donkeys has become well known for its ladies’ two-into-one coveralls. The original Classic Coverall was launched in the winter of 2018, providing ladies with a more practical alternative to the boiler suit style coverall. This original design was recently joined by the Dartmoor variation, made from Ventile fabric to keep wearers dry too, and there’s now a range of other clothing to complement the designs and the ethos behind the brand.
“It’s such a huge honour to have made it to the final stages of these amazing awards,” says Amanda. “I couldn’t quite believe it when I was told, and then saw my picture announcing it on social media!
“We’ve worked hard to build and grow 3 Donkeys since launch, and as a family brand with animals and children to contend with too, and latterly home schooling too due to Covid, to get this kind of recognition has been such an incredible boost.”
The Awards started in 2013 with the aim of celebrating the hard work and inspiring stories behind the entrepreneurs and small businesses in the UK. There are 16 categories for each of the eight UK regions, with just a handful finalists in each category. A regional winner will be announced before an overall UK winner on the 23rd November 2020.
