BULLSBROOK schoolgirl Ashleya Eggleston is a budding entrepreneur who wants to make a difference to the lives of less fortunate kids on the other side of the world.

The Year 5 student’s eager waving of a Weet Bix sign at the cricket earned her a cool $1000 earlier this year, which she has used to start lip balm business Beauty from Ash’s.

Thanks to the help of Swan Valley business The House of Honey, who donated the venue and beeswax, Ashleya will launch her business on Saturday, November 5.

$2 from the sale of each lip balm will go towards her goal of $1300 so she can sponsor a book through Laotian publisher Big Brother Mouse to help children learn to read.

There will be live music at the event by fellow Bullsbrook College student Madi Henry, who recently won the WAM Song of the Year Award in her age category.

Face painting for kids will also be on offer, as well as a silent auction.
