Get Rich Or Tie Dyeing — Pop-Up Shop Brings Ventnor Pupils Closer To Legoland Dream

Pupils from Ventnor's St Catherine's school harnessed their entrepreneurial spirit to raise funds for a dream trip.

The school's 'Dye Hard' team used their space in Newport's High Street to sell tie dye t-shirts and tote bags as part of a Young Enterprise event to raise money by creating a new business venture.

The students hoped to raise enough money for a dream trip to Legoland in Windsor.

Teacher, Becky Quigley, said:

"Pupils were given the opportunity to have a pop-up shop and sell their products, and created a range all-recyclable tie-dye shirts and tote bags.

"They want to make enough money to take us all to Legoland, and would like to thank everyone who's purchased the items so far."

The pop-up shops were part of a nationally recognised annual competition which saw schools competing to raise the most money.

St Catherine's specialises in the care, education and therapy of young people with speech, language and communication needs.

Dye Hard products are still available to purchase online by emailing [email protected].
