Mishmash Young Enterprise team takes third place

THE Blandford School’s Young Enterprise team, ‘Mishmash’, came third in the county finals of Young Enterprise 2013 at the Queen’s Hotel in Bournemouth.

The judges praised ‘Mishmash’ for their innovative and imaginative business model. The Blandford team also won the Best Company Report of the Year award.

Led by managing director, Robbie McClachlan, ‘Mishmash’ has gone from strength to strength since forming back in October 2012. In the run-up to Christmas, the company braved the cold to sell their locally produced goods in Christmas markets in Bournemouth and Poole.
Following this success, the budding Blandford entrepreneurs developed their own clothing brand, called ‘Leave The Building’. A-level Textiles student, Jouhena Chowdhury, oversaw the production of the company’s highly stylish ‘recycled’ clothing range, which has sold amazingly well on fashion website ‘Asos’. Some of these garments were modelled recently by the students in fashion shows incorporated into year assemblies.
