Have your say

A student who set up her own vegan baking business has won the student entrepreneur of the year award at the Portsmouth College annual ceremony.

Rosie Newton, 19, founded Rose’s Bakery, which provides healthy and animal-free products to consumers across Portsmouth and beyond.

It is now the main cake stockist for Pie & Vinyl in Southsea and continues to grow month-on-month.

The award was selected by the Unloc Enterprise Academy team and awarded by Portsmouth College to recognise students’ contribution to business and enterprise.

The award was presented by Rachel Lowe, creator of the Destination Board, Unloc director Ben Dowling and the college principal Steve Frampton.

Ms Newton said: ‘I was delighted to win the award and it just shows how far Rose’s Bakery has come. I couldn’t be happier.’

Steve Frampton, principal of Portsmouth College said: ‘We are delighted to be acknowledging hard working young people who have gone the extra mile.’
