Cosey Candles for long winter nights

Cosey Candles for long winter nights

A group of Sixth Form students have joined forces to create a range of eco-friendly products just in time for Christmas.

The Cosey Candle Company makes and sells candles from recycled glass jars from local businesses, and are finished off with handmade wooden tags. The candles are being sold to the local community at a number of local craft and Christmas events. 

The Young Enterprise company programme is a national initiative that sees groups of students aged 15-19 form a business to raise share capital and create, sell and market products in an attempt to generate profits. 

Each business/team is then judged at a local or regional event where the teams must create a trade stand and present to a panel of judges their business plan and product performance.

This year's RGS team will attend the Young Enterprise North East event during the spring.
