|Brief Synopsis:||Alfie Cookson left school with no qualifications, was diagnosed with ADHA, Tourette's syndrome and dyslexia and struggled with his speech due to a stutter.
But against all of the odds, despite finding it hard to hold down a job working for other people, the 18-year old set up his own business on his tandem bike and trailer in his hometown of Clitheroe.
Turning his hand to anything, Alfie provides a range of services to the local folk, offering everything from rubbish removals to gutter cleaning. With a real hard-working attitude and a positive outlook on life, Alfie has been described as an old head on young shoulders.
