Eilidh joined students from the Fraserburgh campus of North East Scotland College as they took a green approach to demonstrate their effective money management skills. The second year class invested a grant of £200 in a “Mad about Plants” enterprise, creating and selling a wide variety of planters and arrangements in the local community.
Janice Smith, Horticulture lecturer said:
The Mad about Plants team have raised over £300 in sales to date and, in true entrepreneurial spirit, this will be ploughed into the next green fingered project on the horizon.
The Money for Life Challenge is a national competition which provides grants for 16 to 24 year olds to run a project to improve money management skills in their communities. The most inspiring and impactful projects progress to the National Finals and the UK Grand Final.
