Safeguard Group’s Education and Community Lead Ben Ingham is currently mentor to the Young Enterprise group at North Chadderton School and this week he supported them in the first round of the competition by helping students on their stall at the famous Manchester Christmas Markets.

The group’s company NC Environment have developed a range of unusually scented candles with fragrances ranging from Christmas Pudding to Lemon Cheescake and including a recipe on how to make the dessert of the candle’s smell! ‘Sweet Course’ have the marketing slogan ‘Burn it and Bake it’ and according to Ben, business at the market was brisk with shoppers eager to buy something different.

Ben said “I’m very proud of the young people and yesterday they really demonstrated how committed they are to the competition and their company. We did really well and despite the cold sold lots of candles to a packed Christmas Market.”

The final of Young Enterprise 2014 is next year when NC Environment hope to bring home the title.
