A TEAM of young Evesham entrepreneurs will be taking to the streets of Worcester to try and make their business boom as part of a prestigious competition.

The group of nine budding business partners from Prince Henry’s High School will be on the city’s High Street tomorrow (Saturday), where they hope to sell their range of jams, chutneys and preserves made with ethically sourced ingredients.

Their business, Henry’s Preserves, has been set-up as part of the Young Enterprise scheme – the UK’s leading charity empowering young people to harness their business skills – and the team hope to progress through the West Midlands, National and European final stages to claim the title of ‘Company of the Year’.

16-year-old Faith Williamson, managing director of Henry’s Preserves told the Observer: “We hope to get really far in the competition and tomorrow is the first real stage.

“We won the practice round at Worcester Cathedral in November last year and this time we’ll be back in the city along with other Worcestershire Young Enterprise groups to try and sell our products. We hope the public of both Evesham and Worcester will come and support us.”

The team will be trading on the city’s High Street from 10am to 4pm.
