As winners of the inaugural Worcester Bosch Enterprise Initiative, a group of students have seen their Worcester Warriors branded gift set for dogs go on sale at the Sixways Stadium.
The competition took place earlier in the year and saw students from six schools across the West Midlands go head to head in designing a product that could be sold at the stadium. The groups of students created their own presentations and pitched their ideas to Steve Lister, Worcester Bosch Sales and Marketing Director; Louise Hewitt, Managing Director at Hewitt Recruitment, and Carol Hart, Head of the Warriors Community Foundation.
The Bishop Perowne team, made up of Daniel Millward, Thomas Fowles, Dominic Olney and Samuel Quayle, spent time researching products that were already on sale to ensure they came up with something unique that would be of interest to supporters of the Worcester Warriors.
Mark Pollard, Headteacher, and school dog Orlando, joined Daniel, Thomas, Dominic and Samuel at the Sixways Stadium on Friday 8th December to celebrate the gift set going on sale.
Mark Pollard commented, "The students worked extremely hard on the project for six months before presenting their idea to the panel of judges. The initiative was a great way for students to develop their design, teamwork and presenting skills whilst working on a real-life project and the standard from all schools taking part was exceptionally high. The team received fantastic support from Clare Morris, our Subject Leader for Vocational Studies, who was guiding them throughout the whole project.
"I was impressed with the research our team did at the beginning of the project and it was fantastic to see the students' product go on sale at the stadium; they should be extremely proud of what they accomplished."
The dog gift set is available from the Sixways Stadium and costs £7 for the dog bowl and £5 for the pet poop bag holder.
