A baby carrier company based in the south Lakes has won a national award.

Kendal brand KahuBaby has won the silver award for travel products in the Nursery Online trade awards.

“This comes at the perfect time for us”, said founder and director Carissa Lough.

“Lockdown was a very difficult period for small businesses, and it’s really uplifting to win this award as restrictions are lifting”.

She said sourcing materials locally during lockdown had enabled it to stay open.

“It has definitely highlighted the importance of having suppliers nearby”, she said.
