Electricity company Budget Energy has donated £10,000 to networking group Women in Business.

Budget Energy's founder Eleanor McEvoy is currently appearing as a Dragon on RTE's business reality show, Dragon's Den.

Ms McEvoy said: "As a female entrepreneur, I am delighted to support other aspiring business women.

"It's still a man's world out there, particularly in business, but I have shown that with determination and support, women can achieve their ambitions."

The entrepreneur previously built up and sold two companies, Pembroke Distributors and Phonecard Warehouse.

And she's been a finalist on two occasions in business competition the EY Entrepreneur of the Year Awards.

Women in Business chief executive, Roseann Kelly, said: "We are delighted to receive this donation from Eleanor. The money will be used to support Women in Business in its drive to create a new economy."
