Youth Enterprise Challenge Launch Event 2016

The Youth Enterprise Challenge will see teams from six schools including Alder Grange, All Saints, Fearns, Haslingden High, Tor View and Whitworth High come up with enterprising initiatives, with all the proceeds going to Rossendale Hospice.

During the three-month challenge, the Year 10 school teams will link up with a mentor from a local business, who have kick-started their project with a £50 donation.  Each team’s ultimate aim will be to use the investment to generate as much as they can to benefit local people.

The businesses that have agreed to take part as mentors are video production company Big Tank Productions, chartered accountants Cassons, estate agents Farrow and Farrow, HSBC bank, Rossendale Leisure Trust and Trickett’s Insurance Brokers.
