On Sunday 7th December, Newquay Tretherras’ Young Enterprise team, ‘Cornish Creations’, launched their first product lines of luxury handmade natural soy candles at a Christmas Trade Fair in Truro.
The students created a range of seasonal scented candles in time for the Christmas shopping period including Christmas Pine, Spiced Apple and Chocolate Orange.
The group came away selling over half of their candles and won three awards: Best Business Case and Communication, Best Customer Service (Mystery Shopper) and 2nd Place for Best Overall Company.
Mr Anthony Lawrence, teacher in charge of the group said, “The team have been working incredibly hard in the run-up to this trade fair – conducting a wide range of market research and mass producing the product over weekends and late into the evenings. I’m incredibly proud of them and so pleased that the hard work has paid off.”
