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.
