Hand Made Scented Candles by Young Enterprise Team
On Saturday 5th January, the College Young Enterprise team 'Illuminate' took part in their first trade fair in Jackson Square Shopping Centre, Bishops Stortford, selling their line of scented candles. Illuminate was started by a group of keen, business-minded Lower Sixth Formers looking to try their hand at starting and running a business through the Young Enterprise Organisation. Their candles are all hand made with soya wax in recycled steel tins.
As soon as they had set up their stall for a 9am start in Jackson Square, the group were successfully selling candles to passersby, and by midday they had managed to sell all of their stock! Once the trade fair judges had chatted to all of the teams and assessed them on a number of areas, The BSC team were awarded the prize for the best sales techniques and experience.
Well done to the Illuminate team, who will be quickly making more candles and taking them to their next trade fair in March.
