Inspired Goodbyes is a business created by friends Helen Lawson and Sophia Lucop-Leech from Didsbury. Inspired by their own bereavement experiences, they identified an opportunity to create better, more personal range of gifts, cards and keepsakes with the aim to help families and friends around the time of funeral.
Sophia and Helen came to see the Business Growth Hub's Growth Start-Up team in early 2014. Having attended a range of the Business Growth Hub's Start Smart courses and workshops they launched their business later in the year. Inspired Goodbyes also won the Bright Business Ideas Competition in 2014 organised by Spark Stockport.
