A man who used to be homeless is celebrating his business as it reaches a new milestone.

Daniel Norris, who now lives in Henfield, started Brighton Bouncy Castles just over ten years ago after saving for six months to afford his first product.

He has now achieved his 10,000th booking.

Daniel, 41, said: "We started our amazing company just over ten years ago.

"At this stage in my life I lived from the boot of my car having no fixed address and only £500 to my name, probably one of the lowest points in my life.

"I wasn't going to buy the bouncy castle but my sister helped me make the right decision over a glass of wine."

Daniel thanked his friends, family and team for helping make the business a success.

He said: "We are not perfect but we try our absolute hardest to ensure your party is perfect.

"I treat every party as my own and would only expect the best for my customers.

"The most amazing thing is to see all of the children's happy faces when we arrive, you couldn't get a better feeling and it kept me going throughout the tough times .

"If I can give any advice to anyone going through a bad stage in life is to think positive, keep smiling and work hard. You will get to your goal.

"A massive thank you to my family, team and customers past and present."

The business supplies bouncy castles across Brighton and Hove, West Sussex and East Sussex.
