A Narberth entrepreneur has been named as one of Wales’ "most remarkable women" at the Chwarae Teg Womenspire Awards.

The awards, streamed across social media, showcased the winners and finalists who are making such a difference to others and their communities.

Presented by Andrea Byrne of ITV Cymru Wales and Welsh actress and presenter Elin Pavli-Hinde, the ceremony was open to a global online audience.

Leanne Holder was named as Entrepreneur of the Year, having set up BecauseRaceCarBox, a subscription box for car cleaning enthusiasts.

She set up the business with her partner four years ago, wanting to encourage women into cleaning their cars and to move away from male stereotypes.

Leanne launched the ‘Pink Detailing Collection’, and despite the pandemic, the business has grown, with distributors now in France and Belgium.

Being a woman in the automotive industry, she is driven on to support female entrepreneurs and inspire them into male-dominated industries.

Cerys Furlong, Chief Executive, Chwarae Teg, said: “This is our sixth Womenspire awards and once again it has been incredible to hear the stories of all our finalists and their magnificent achievements.

"At Chwarae Teg we know how important it is that these accomplishments are highlighted.

"So, I must congratulate all the finalists, winners and everyone involved and say a big thank you for making Womenspire 2021 such a success."

The biggest winner on the night was Doctor and scientist Bnar Talabani who has been at the forefront of the effort to tackle uncertainty and misinformation around the Covid-19 vaccine.

She received the Woman in Health and Care Award as well as the overall title of Womenspire Champion 2021 having impressed the judges with her warmth, resilience and determination.

Arriving in the UK as a child refugee from Iraq back in 1998, her harrowing start in life could never have foretold her brilliant future.

Bnar has been at the forefront of the effort to tackle uncertainty and misinformation around the Covid-19 vaccine, and was instrumental in the formation of Muslim Doctors Cymru.
