ISLE of Wight students have raised the standard of this year's Young Enterprise programme once again when they retailed products at Newport's Christmas Fayre.

'Deja Brew' from Ryde Academy sold locally roasted coffee while 'Ray Co', from Christ the King, focused on selling upcycled handmade Christmas stocking fillers.

The Young Enterprise students needs to make all decision about their business, from deciding the company name and product to creating a business plan, managing their finances and selling their products.

Area manager for the scheme, Victoria Leese, said she was delight with the students' presentations.

"This was the first opportunity for the students to get in front of the public and sell their products, creating funds to invest in the development of their businesses as part of the competition.

"Both teams made great sales and demonstrated excellent sales techniques and over the next few months, their business concepts will develop quickly.”

Along the journey to the Company of the Year Awards in April, where Christ the King will aim to retain the title for another year, the teams will be grilled on their business plans by some leading local business people in a 'Dragons Den' challenge.

Young Enterprise is funded through sponsorship and this year, Wightfibre is lending generous support to the companies programme on the Island.
