Business mentors wanted to help Piggott School pupils

BUDDING young entrepreneurs need a bit of a helping hand.

Every year, members of Twyford Together help mentor teenagers at The Piggott School in their quest to launch new businesses.

The mentors assist the students in creating business plans – but there is a shortage of helpers so organisers are looking for your help.

Gordon Storey, from Twyford Together, said: “This is very simple and enjoyable not taking up much of your valuable time.

“It is the students’ responsibility to contact mentors after an initial half-hour meeting at the school, and mentors give them the help they feel the students deserve.

“Twyford Together runs the competition to select the winners and then present the prizes at our annual village awards.”
