Bill Cash backs Young Enterprise – and welcomes Council’s securing of funding to coach business leaders of the future

Press release: 19/10/2012

 
MP for Stone, Bill Cash, today said he backs the Young Enterprise charity and supports Staffordshire County Council’s recent decision – along with Stafford Borough Council – to fund Stafford and Stone’s Young Enterprise project.
 
The national Business & Education Charity, which launched its 2012 - 2013 campaign in September, aims to educate young people about enterprise and business in order to encourage the start up of new businesses and self-employment in the future. 
 
The funding will allow the project to run a number of exciting activities over the year. Teachers and business mentors will work with young people in the classroom around the skills and benefits of business, and help facilitate the start-up of small enterprises in the school. 
 
Most recently the project helped start the “Sock Tree Company”, from Alleynes High School which produces sock monkeys and went on to win area, county and regional awards.
 
Cash said:
 
“I attended an important event in my constituency this year at which young people from Alleynes school in Stone were selling produce, based on proper commercial principles.
 
“They were learning key enterprise skills and it is wonderful that young people are given the opportunity and skills to learn about business in this way. 
 
“Our young entrepreneurs are tomorrow’s business leaders, and with their determination, will provide the very engine of growth for the future which is required in our national and local economy in Staffordshire.”
