Young Enterprise students from seven East London secondary schools and colleges set up stalls and sold their products at Greenwich Market -with great success! Visitors bought soaps, wallet, photo frames, beeswax wraps, personalised revision books, aromatherapy oils and jewellery, cards, tote bags and even hand made wallets blocking card clash when using oyster. The stalls were judged and Bloom from City of London School for Girls was awarded Best Overall Company - with their beeswax wraps made from fashion industry offcuts.
Isobel, the MD of Best Overall Company, Bloom said: “Thank you for the opportunity to trade. Trading at Greenwich was invaluable to our team - not only did we get the chance to sell our beeswax wraps, we also got to talk to many people about our product in a great informal setting. Our customer service skills developed immeasurably, and we are all much more confident at approaching people and spreading awareness about our brand. We had a very enjoyable time"
