A South Elmsall business woman has received a national award.

Karen Betts, the director of Nouveau Beauty Group, has won the Natwest Everywoman Award.

The national award recognises Britain’s female entrepreneurs across the country.

The permanent make-up artist started Nouveau Beauty Group in 1996 and offers treatments to cancer, burns and alopecia patients.

She said: “To actually be awarded the overall achievement of Woman of the Year 2014 has still not sunk in.

“For my passion to help education people in niche beauty services such as medical tattooing to be recognised not only for its commercial benefit to the British economy but it’s psychological benefit to the thousands of men and woman disfigured as a result of illness or accident and now choose to have a Nouveau treatment, I am truly humbled.”
