LEADING IN BUSINESS

Weight loss guru Terri Ann is a self-made success after sharing her Diet Plan on social media.This Donny girl now has over75,000+ active members, a team of staff, a recipe book on Amazon and thousands of success stories helping others to shed weight and feel great.

Jackie Bailey, owner of Masons Arms, Rum Rooms and Magdalen’s is a creative force and huge asset to Donny’s town centre night-life. These venues aren’t just pubs; Jackie’s vision was to create somewhere people could chill and escape, no bar hopping, just settle and enjoy. And boy has she achieved it. Now the owner of three venues that bring a city style experience to Doncaster’s town centre. In her spare time, she chairs Doncaster’s business forum which brings together business owners and the Council to make the town centre the best it can be.

Zara Jayne Elliot, owner of Wonderland Awaits, is a style advocate for all things wonderful from bygone eras. Wonderland Awaits is an independent vintage clothing boutique in Donny’s shopping centre. In a world of throwaway fashion, Zara’s ethos is refreshing; style over fashion, rescue and reuse, planet-friendly packaging. We especially love the no-judgment policy. The store is fully wheelchair accessible and provides a sanctuary for nursing mothers.
