Students at a Kettering school are celebrating winning a national entrepreneur competition.
Les Petits Fleurs, a team from Southfield School, won the National Tenner 2014 ‘Best Group’ Award in the 15 to 19 years category.
The team of six were given £10 on March 1, and were given a month to get their business off the ground, making as much profit as possible and also trying to give back to society.
They raked in more than £150, of which £88.55 was profit, by designing and making hair accessories (pictured).
The group said: “We decided to give this £88.55 to Cancer Research UK as two members of our group volunteer at the local Cancer Research store and this charity meant a lot to Les Petites Fleurs.”
As a result, the students will attend a prize-giving ceremony in London later this month.
The judges said: “The team really researched their market and understood what their consumer wanted. We were impressed as well by their partnership with a local charity shop and how they overcame problems.”
