An 11-year-old boy who started a skincare business in lockdown has won an entrepreneurial award.
Cairo Barrett from Leeds began Cairo’s Organic Creams from his kitchen, making moisturisers to a recipe his mum created to treat his childhood eczema.
He sells his products on social media, but hopes to one day have his own shop.
Cairo has now been named Male Entrepreneur of the Year by Bradford charity the Afro-Caribbean Achievement Project (ACAP).
“I want other people to be working for me,” he said.
“A lot of my friends, and my mum’s friends who have kids, have been coming up to me saying can you hire me, can you hire my son or daughter?”
