King Solomon High and Chadwell Heath Academy students face off for business competition

Two teams of students from Redbridge have been given a start-up fund of �250 each to set up a business with all profits going to charity.

Students from King Solomon High School are going to create custom t-shirts to be sold to students and staff in aid of St Francis Hospice in Havering-atte-Bower.

They will be competing against Chadwell Heath Academy, together with five other schools from outside the borough.

Taranjeet Degan, 16, of Chadwell Heath Academy, Christie Gardens, Chadwell Heath, said: “I feel proud to be involved, it’s something the team felt could help us in the future and that we could support for a good cause.” They have six months to turn a profit with the team raising the most getting an iPad 3.
