Bringing ‘happy’ to the retail table, with Emily Coxhead, founder of The Happy News

In a world where bad news dominates our headlines, Emily Coxhead created The Happy Newspaper: a newspaper which only shines a light on good news.

Since starting with £500 raised through Kickstarter and handing out copies in care homes and hospitals, Emily has grown the Happy News into something quite magical.

Holly sat down with Emily on her sofa to talk about how not only Richard Branson is one of her greatest fans but also, how feeling low helped her come up with the idea in the first place. The strains of starting a business as a graduate and how she has turned her idea into more than just a newspaper.
