Scranbition chose to focus their project on social responsibilities rather than profit and helped launch a food bank to raise awareness about poverty in the area.
The team have launched the project, presented this to various audiences (which in turn has boosted the donation fund), prepared a trade stand and produced a quality business plan. McVities factory have been their main business advisor and I happily came on board to help and review the business plan.
The team successfully made it on to the short list of 6 schools from the original 20 and learned of their recent success at the Cumbria finals which took place at Carlisle Racecourse on Thursday night; they won best company presentation and new media!
The next stage is representing Cumbria in the North West Regional Finals which are to be held at Manchester Airport on June 21.
We wish the team the best of luck!
