A WORCESTER teenager who runs his own business enterprise has received county-wide recognition for his achievements.

Daniel Lloyd, aged 17, of Warndon Villages, who suffers from cerebral palsy and uses a mobility scooter to get around, has been recognised for his personal achievement in Worcestershire County Council’s Tryangle Awards.

He found his business niche selling eggs and he runs the business from his grandparents’ house in Green Street, Kempsey, near Worcester, where he keeps his own chickens.

The Tryangle Awards reward young “tryers” in categories such as personal development and sports.

A council spokesman said: “He has been recognised for taking the initiative to start this business, from keeping the chickens and making contacts with people to make the business successful.”

Daniel, a pupil at Regency High School in Warndon, sells his eggs at school and has designed his own business logo and boxes.

His mum Kate said: “He was so chuffed when he got the certificate .

“He’s got it all sussed out, it’s his own little enterprise.”
