Candles for charity

? YOUNG entrepreneurs from Backwell have started up their own project selling candles for charity.

Seven Backwell School pupils have set up a social enterprise called The Green Candle and have been making and selling hand-made recycled candles and donating their profits to the Make a Wish Foundation.

The group - which is working towards a social enterprise qualification – will be selling the candles at Backwell Christmas fair on November 30.
