News - Young Enterprise Success for Bags&Tags

This year, some of our ‘more enterprising’ year 12 students formed a Young Enterprise company, making and selling gift bags which promised a ‘Cosy Night In’! The bags contained fluffy socks, a mug complete with hot chocolate and marshmallows, a bath bomb and scented candles. Judging by the successful sales, largely to Westwood staff, there were a lot of cosy nights in around Leek this Christmas!

As part of the Young Enterprise Programme, Bags&Tags sold a Valentine version of the bag in a trade fair at the Potteries Centre, compiled a business report and did a presentation of their experiences to Young Enterprise judges. The team were one of the successful teams and made it through to the Area Finals, where they represented Westwood College at an event held in April at Alton Towers.

As a bonus, Lynn Walker from Britannia was also presented with the Best Business Advisor award, for the help she gave to the team throughout the year.

Congratulations to the girls who have given a great deal of their spare time after school and at the weekends to get so far through the competition. Bags&Tags were Rachel Evans and Olivia Proctor (Managing Directors), Charlotte Bassett, Carrie Anne Jennings, Ashley Jones, Zoe Sales and Charlotte Wrigley.

All proceeds from Bags&Tags sales will go to the Donna Louise Trust. If anyone would like to buy a ‘Cosy Night In’ bag, stock is still available! Please speak to Mrs Percival.
