Congratulations to our Young Enterprise team “Books of Life” who won ‘Best Company’ on Saturday 30th November at St Nicholas Market in Bristol.
The Young Enterprise team are tackling environmental issues with their first children's book 'How Can We Help? The Rainforests'. The team aims to create a series of 'How Can We Help?' books, which help children through world issues in a relatable and positive way, ultimately guiding them to take meaningful action. The book series has no hero characters to idolise, as the team wants the true hero to be the reader of the book. The main character is anonymous, and children are encouraged to colour in the character as themselves, so that they live the story and can see themselves as heroes.
Each book sold comes with a seed, so that the reader can be a hero in real life and start to tackle the damage by planting their own seed to grow. 'Books of Life' are unique as each page is created and illustrated by individual team members: made by young people, for young people.
At the event, they were commended on their stand, product innovation, branding and customer service and sold an incredible £240 worth of their products.
Congratulations to the team: Albert, Aleena, Allen, Chris, David, Dona, Ewan, Felix, Flynn, Jack, Joanna, Kacper and Ruben.
