A TRADING day for students drummed up a lot of business for charity.

Faith and Football’s social enterprise and business challenge trading day took place in Cascades Shopping Centre, Portsmouth.

More than 100 pupils from schools in and near Portsmouth set up their stalls and were trading goods from 8am.

Items on sale included hand-made soap, discounted computer games, phone socks, hand-made bracelets, bags and cards.

And co-founder of the charity Linvoy Primus was also there to see the craftsmanship on the 25 stalls.

He said: ‘This event proved again what massive potential there is among young people in Portsmouth.

‘Their creativity, enthusiasm and dedication was a testimony not only to them, but to the schools that they represented and the teachers and mentors who worked so hard to give them this opportunity.’

The former footballer added: ‘I wouldn’t like to be a judge when the challenge comes to it’s conclusion, as it will be too hard to call.’
