Project teaches kids business skills from a young age
ENTERPRISE: Pupils from nine East Yorkshire primary schools will be showcasing their business and enterprise skills when they gather for the Make £5 Blossom celebration event at The Exchange on Tuesday, February 5.
Each school has linked up with local businesses, which have provided a £150 loan and their time to help the children to run their own mini business, using the Big 13 Enterprise Skills.
Hull Ready's Make £5 Blossom project is part of the city's pathway to enterprise programme. The project gives businesses the chance to invest in the future of young people.
St Stephen's shopping centre, RMC Digital, Xuro, Esteem, NPS and Neil Hudgell Solicitors' are some of the businesses involved in the current round of the project.

Jamie Barnwell- Edinboro, of iCon Development, said: "It's a great privilege for me, iCon Development and Hall Road Rangers to be involved with the project.
"St James School in Bransholme have really embraced the event, the football club and the Big 13 to not only raise funds for the school, but play its part in contributing to school and community sport and football development with the excellent tournament they organised.
"The skills they've learned, developed and used, coupled with the enthusiasm they've shown will stand them in good stead for their futures."
