ENTREPRENEURS from Backwell have been presented with a bronze award for their successful candle business.

Six students from Backwell School’s social enterprise group have been building up The Green Candle Company into a thriving business.

The youngsters collected old candles which they recycled to make attractive candles in jars.

They then sold the items at the school’s Christmas Fair and raised £100 for the Make a Wish Foundation.

The talented students travelled to Plymouth University to receive the award for their portfolios which were completed as part of their bronze social enterprise project.
