A group of young entrepreneurs have been selling balloon pets as part of the Faith and Football Social Enterprise Business Challenge.

Bradley Harding-Martin, 13, along with Liam Percival, Luca Viola and William Hamilton set up Zig-a-Zagaz – a business which sells walking balloon pets.

They have been running the business for about six weeks and are well on their way to the £1,000 turnover target to win the life-changing top prize of a trip to India, where they will see their profits being put to good use supporting the mission work of Faith and Football, together with meeting some of the orphans.

They have been seeling their balloons for £3.50 in local venues such as Cascades Shopping Centre in Portsmouth.

Bradley said: ‘I’m really excited to be involved in helping to raise money for the Faith and Football challenge.

‘We are all really dedicated to our business Zig-a-Zagaz. I hope our walking balloons can help children in India whilst at the same time making children here in the UK smile.’

Liam added: ‘I’m having so much fun running the business with the rest of the team. The whole experience really has been amazing and will help me massively in the future. I’m so pleased I had the opportunity to take part in the challenge.’
