Year 10 Business Studies students are taking part in an exciting accumulator challenge project this term.

The project, backed by the Papworth Trust and Mr Hugh’s Rapeseed Oil, challenges students to make as much profit as possible from an initial £50 investment. Students are working in teams to come up with some ideas to turn their £50 into big money.

The School Accumulator Challenge launched on 3rd November 2014 and runs until 12th January 2015, followed by a prize giving event for members of the winning teams. All funds raised will be donated to the Papworth Trust, which provides essential services for disabled and older people.

Nova Hreod has entered 15 teams into the challenge, and the students have started fundraising activities to turn their £50 into big money. Students have come up with a number of different business ideas from charity raffles, selling cakes and confectionary and selling oil kindly donated by Mr Hugh’s Rapseed Oil.

Papworth Trust Community Fundraising Manager Jacqueline Cameron said,

“This challenge is designed for students to show their entrepreneurial and money raising talents to turn their original stake into as much cash as possible. All funds raised will then be used to support disabled and older people and their families in the community.”
