Young Enterprise Success
Withington's two Young Enterprise companies On Hold and Ugly have enjoyed a string of successes recently.
At the Presentation Evening on April 15th, On Hold won shields for Best Report and Best Display Stand and the Silver trophy for Manchester North Area Board Best Company. We wish them every success in the Greater Manchester Strategic Board Final on May 7th and commiserate with Ugly , who were a very close second in all categories.
Both companies were amongst 40 rival concerns from Manchester displaying their wares at the organisation's Trafford Centre Trade Fair in February.
On Hold is designing, manufacturing and marketing mobile telephone holders and Ugly is producing and selling make-up bags in a variety of materials.
Each of the two companies comprises 11 girls from the Lower Sixth undertaking a range of business roles.
Earlier in the year On Hold were successful in the challenging ‘Dragons' Den' assessment, where they impressed the four judges, each of whom runs their own successful commercial business.
