North London Collegiate students win award for their colourful coffee mugs business
Budding entrepreneurs have won an award for their successful coffee mugs business.
North London Collegiate students went head-to-head with 100 students in the Young Enterprise Awards at Brent Cross Shopping Centre on Saturday and Sunday.
Teams from schools across North London set up their stalls selling items including 'thermochromic' socks that change colour the hotter they get and vintage clothing.
Prizes were handed out to the top teams including pupils from North London Collegiate College in Canons Drive, Edgware, who won the award for Best Trade Stand.
The team, known as the sMUG group, were selling travel mugs adorned with quirky slogans including ‘to infini-tea and beyond’ and ‘how YOU brewin?’.
The group bought its portable plastic coffee cups from an organisation in Manchester, and sold each one for £7.99.
