In total the six teams raised an amazing £18,844.67 for the six charities involved
They raised invaluable awareness on behalf of their charities and hopefully learnt a few key business skills along the way.
Our team was Team Falcon from Bishops Hatfield Girls School. In total the girls raised £3,042.19 on behalf of Willow (which is OA’s chosen Charity of the Year for 2017)
Throughout the whole 5 month process the team displayed creativity, boundless energy and a sincere desire to raise awareness and raise as much money as possible for Willow. Everyone in OA is extremely proud of the Bishops Hatfield team.
I have a feeling one of their ideas “Wave for Willow” will very soon become an internet sensation….so keep your eyes on social media for this over the next month or so.
This was the first time OA have been involved in the Dragons Apprentice and we would whole-heartedly recommend it to any business, large or small. Get involved and make a difference to local charities, whilst at the same time helping students learn business skills that will equip them for “the world of work”.
Dragons Apprentice runs from October through to March. If you would like to get involved for the 2017-2018 Welwyn & Hatfield programme, please contact:- firstname.lastname@example.org
