Year 10 Young Enterprise Bake Sale
Friday 26 November 2021
Young Enterprise are an educational charity who provide meaningful opportunities for young people to develop an enterprising mindset in which to apply crucial skills to navigate a successful future. Young Enterprise works directly with young people, teachers, volunteers and influencers to build a successful and sustainable future for all young people.
Our Year 10 young enterprise team decided to fundraise for their YE company by holding a bake sale. The bake sale took place on the 25th of November, during lunch and break times, this helped the young entrepreneurs to maximise their profits as they were able to sell to all the students across the different year groups.
They planned the bake sale in their own time after school, where they decided to sell home baked brownies, cupcakes, cookies, crepes, pancakes and much more. The bakes proved to be a hit among the younger years, with the team selling most of their bakes during the first break.
They team raised £135 from the bake sale and the funds will be used by them to buy stock to create their products. After weeks of brainstorming and board meetings, the company have decided to sell handmade jewellery. They will spend the remainder of the term creating their products, ready to be sold at the upcoming trade fair where they will be competing with other schools in the region.
The event was a massive success, and they would like to thank everyone who supported them by buying something and helping the company to grow.
