JACK and Harry are the Eastbourne brothers who set up their own company during lockdown,
They decided to put their spare time to good use by setting up Animate Our Logo, an online logo business.
Covid-19 meant the brothers were both off school so had more time on their hands. They were inspired by the biographies of business figures such as Steve Jobs and Duncan Bannatyne.
Yesterday they met Eastbourne MP Caroline Ansell for coffee.
Here’s what they said: “It was such a huge honour for us to receive a letter from our local MP Caroline Ansell congratulating us on our business start up a few months ago and within that letter Caroline (Amazingly) asked to meet us.
We have been so excited ever since leading up to today where we were asked to meet her at her office in the Town Hall. As we arrived we could see a really big wedding taking place which looked really fun.
We were only expecting to see Caroline for 5 minutes as we can only imagine how busy she is but she was so kind and actually took us across the road for a Coffee (Frappe)
We ended up spending a whole hour with her as she asked us lots of questions about how we started our business, our plans for the future and business in general.
It was also fascinating to hear how she became an MP. One of the highlights for us was half way through our conversation, Caroline took a selfie with us and sent it onto Rishi Sunak who also wrote to us a few months ago. Such an amazing day!
We came away really blown away how kind Caroline was and are looking forward to keeping in touch with her.”
