TEENAGERS showed their entrepreneurial spirit as part of a scheme designed to encourage them to take an interest in business.

The charity Faith & Football has been running the Enterprise Challenge for pupils in Year 9 from 10 schools across the area.

Teams have each devised a business idea and turned it into a way of generating income, with all profits going towards the charity’s work in India, Africa and the UK.

The winners of the challenge receive a trip to India.

Last year’s winners were the Traybake Traders from Oaklands school.

Joe Quinlan, 14, was part of a team from St Edmund’s Catholic School in Portsmouth.

Their business, Snapshot, made greeting cards and postcards from photos featuring a Lego figure called Bobby.

Joe said: ‘Bobby travels around and takes photos of iconic landmarks in London and Portsmouth such as Big Ben and the Spinnaker Tower. It’s great fun and we are learning a lot about the skills needed in business.’

They had a stall selling goods earlier this month in Cascades Shopping Centre, in Portsmouth, and then at the Love Southsea market, in Palmerston Road. The winners will be announced at a prize-giving at Fratton Park on June 14.
