Talented Year 12 students have successfully beaten the competition in both the County and Regional Young Enterprise Finals. They will now compete at the ‘UK Company of the Year’ award ceremony in June.
“We are thrilled to be named the winners of the North West Regional YE Competition. It’s been an exciting journey through which we have learned so much. Creating a product we are all passionate about has been very rewarding. I can proudly say each and every member of the team have developed into more confident individuals. Thank you to the North West YE for a lovely presentation evening, we all enjoyed ourselves.” Ffion Scholfield, Managing Director, Calma
‘Calma’ developed and created a brand of high-quality candles that are both ethical and sustainable, with the focus on using the power of aromatherapy to improve mental wellbeing. The idea of Calma began in lockdown when the country was spending more time at home than ever before; mental health became a key component of product development.
“Being stuck at home gave everyone a chance to really reflect on their well-being. Many of us felt lonely, isolated and stressed. Our aim is to help people create the right atmosphere in their homes so they can feel their best, despite everything else going on.”
