AN entrepreneur with a devotion to all things to do with feet has expanded her business.
Sandra Allison, the owner of the Hartlepool company Fetching Feet, has moved into premises in Lister Street and taken on an extra member of staff.
Sophie Odgers has joined as a podiatrist at the firm which deals with everything from chiropody to podiatry.
Sandra said Sophie would be doing all the company’s mobile work as well as some in the surgery, while she concentrates on work which comes into the Lister Street premises.
Sandra added: “I would like us both to be working full-time. We both have space we would love to fill.”
Most of the clientele comes from the Hartlepool area and Sandra estimates that 70 per cent of them are elderly clients suffering from ailments caused by lack of mobility.
“A lot of them can’t reach their feet so they have problems such as hard skin and not being able to reach their toenails. It gets a bit out of control,” Sandra said.
Sandra hopes that the business progresses so well she may be in a position to take on more staff in the future.
