The Young Enterprise Scheme is celebrating 50 years this year as the continue to "Save a lost generation to start something!".
The Rotary Club of Wessex Mead was approached by St Augustines School in Trowbridge to support students with their ventures.  Club secretary Vicky was happy to get involved and here is her report -

"I have just started as a mentor for St Augustine's Young Enterprise Scheme. I am advising a group of Year 10 students who are setting up and running their own company for a year. The aim is to inspire future entrepreuneurs and build their business skills and confidence. The ladies' company is called Cherry Bomb and so far they are producing jewellery from recycled materials, although they are also looking at expanding the range. I was keen to support the scheme because it sits well with my role as financial trainer for English Heritage. Working with people so new to business is giving me a new insight into how daunting finance can be for non-specialists."
