MEET THE FINALISTS- Mum's Pride

Posted on 12 March, 2021 at 2:15 Comments comments (1)




NOMINATION CATEGORY: MUM-OWNED BUSINESS OF THE YEAR


Mum's Pride (@mums_prideteam on Instagram) is a platform for mothers from different backgrounds and walks of life where they can feel safe, supported and encouraged.

 

This group was founded four years ago after Katie, the founder, graduated from medical school and realised that, despite having great support from her family and friends, she felt very lonely because it seemed as though no one could relate to her journey as a mum. In Mum's Pride, they all speak the same mum-language and we keep it real.

 

They have about 150 women on our WhatsApp group where mothers feel free to share their experiences, ask questions and use the platform as it benefits them. They also have separate subgroups such as our "silent group" where they only post events, info, and notices for mothers who prefer to limit WhatsApp chats. They also have subgroups for different locations.

 

Mum's Pride meet regularly (although we have paused these meetings since the pandemic started), often in small groups, and always allowing children to come along (apart from our yearly Night Out and Spa Day!). They believe in kids networking and, importantly, they understand the difficulties of finding childcare.

 

Katie is a Christian and sees this group as her ministry and her way of spreading the love of God. For instance, during the first lockdown in 2020, they realised how necessary it was for many of them to have regular prayer meetings to uplift each other. However, they pride themelves in being a diverse group in terms of religion, age and background, and all mothers are welcome.

 

During these unprecedented times, Mum's Pride has been involved in meetings with local MPs to discuss matters regarding mental health and early learning for our children. As Covid-19 has highlighted the different ways in which the pandemic is affecting different communities, Mum's Pride has taken part in important conversations in the community. They are also well supported by our local Housing Association and local businesses.

 

Mum's Pride has the privilege of having many women working in the healthcare sector, so the group also has a subgroup for doctors who help answer medical questions and correctly signpost mothers in need. Especially during this pandemic, it has been beneficial to have mothers helping to filter through and explain governmental and medical guidelines.

 

Mum's Pride has truly been a blessing to many and they wish to continue supporting not only our local community, but also mothers across the world.

We can not wait to celebrate this mother of excellence on 14th of March 2021.

MEET THE FINALISTS- Just Like Mummy's

Posted on 9 March, 2021 at 2:05 Comments comments (1)




NOMINATION CATEGORY: MUM-OWNED BUSINESS OF THE YEAR


 Krystle Ijeoma Oguntayo is the owner and Chief Cake Engineer of Just Like Mummy’s Ltd, a cake baking and decorating company based in Dartford, Kent. She a mother to four amazing children and a wife to the best husband in the world.


Just Like Mummy’s started 10 years ago whilst she was pregnant with her first child.  Her mother was a baker and as a child of Nigerian origin, helping her mum bake was a given.  Kystle fondly recalls helping her whisk the batter, making the buttercream icing and licking the bowl once she had finished. Sadly, her  mother passed away from Cancer when she was 23 years old so when she was pregnant, the “nesting” stage began to kick in and she had the urge to bake! She remembered how the cake batter should taste, smell and using her natural instincts began to bake cakes as a hobby.  She had her first paid cake order in November 2011 and began to make cakes Just Like My Mummy; officially Just Like Mummy’s had been created.


Over the last 10 years, Just Like Mummy’s has grown from strength to strength! As a home based bakery they take pride in creating a great tasting and bespoke cake creation that remains the centrepiece of any occasions. Specialising in cakes, cupcakes, cookies and other cakey treats, they have brought smiles to many weddings, birthdays, showers and christening occasions. In 2013,  she won a Certificate of Merit in the prestigious Cake International Show in the Sculpted Novelty Cake category and also obtained her second Certificate of Merit in the 2015 Cake International Show Wedding Cake category. The team have also been nominated and shortlisted in many recognisable industry awards such as the Bridebook Wedding Awards 2017 and a finalist in The UK African Wedding awards 2017.


But to date, thier biggest achievement is the ability to give back to others and encourage other mothers or bakers to use the gifts God gave to them.  Krystle has been a Probation Officer for 14 years and working full time, whilst juggling a business, and raising a family has, at times, been challenging; but knowing that each cake has been baked and received in love is a feeling that can not be replaced. In 2019 she launched the Just Like Mummy’s School of Baking where she is able to give back to her community and encourage and mentor upcoming bakers and young children. Due to COVID-19, they were unable to run any face-to-face classes, but being undeterred by this, they quickly began offering online virtual classes and created Quarantine Birthday Cake kits so that you could also bake a cake at home for your loved ones and have a virtual baking party as hosted by them. With the first lockdown also came their baking series Youtube series “14 things to bake with the kids” staring her very own crew to help parents bake with your children as a break away from home-schooling. Seeing them bake like mini professionals really strengthened her Raison d'être; She has been able to create something that can be passed onto my children, just like  her mother passed on her passion onto her. Her ethos of creating multiple stream of income from doing what you love has also been transferred onto to her daughters (aged 13, 10 and 6) who created their own sorbet company – Sorbet Sistaz this year during lockdown.
