SCHOOL CHILDREN from Lythe gave Lord Sugar a run for his money and are totting up the profits after putting their entrepenurial skills to the test.

They were one of seven schools from across the borough taking part in the first Make £5 Blossom project in the area.

School teams joined up with a local business and came up with a product which they also had to develop and market.

With the help of Only Me Here Lythe School made frozen fruit kebabs for the school sports day and ran a French cafe.

They then presented their final results abd repaid the loan to their business partners at a day long event at the Stephen Joseph Theatre in Scarborough last month.

Make £5 Blossom was originally launched in Rotherham and supported by the Youth Enterprise Services and in Scarborough by North Yorkshire Business and Education Partnership.

It aims to develop enterprise skills in children to prepare them for the world of work, promote the local economy and bridge the gap between local businesses and schools.
