Her parents Carole and Michael have built up a comfortable cash pile from a successful online party business, Party Pieces – established in 1987. It is a mail order business that aims to help parents create ‘magical’ parties for their children at home. Party Pieces is run from a call centre, with eight staff, out of a barn near Reading in Berkshire. It also has a website which attracts around 150,000 potential customers a month…” (The Richest.com)
