Borras support the Dragons’ Apprentice Challenge

Having completed its 5th year the Dragons’ Apprentice Challenge is managed by the Centre for Voluntary Service (CVS) St Albans City and District and has presented over £200,000 to 109 Hertfordshire based charities.

Using their initial £100 and with the support and guidance from local business mentors and charities, chosen teams of 6 year 12 school students are asked to generate income through business based activities, gaining valuable practical experience of planning, time management, teamwork, budgeting, communications, sales and marketing. Each team is given £100 to turn into £1000 or more and is matched with a local business mentor (their Dragon) and a local charity or community group. In the case of Borras Construction our dragon is Ann Tune, Proposals Manager and our chosen charity is the Willow Foundation. All profits made go directly to their allocated charity/community organisation.

Ann is mentoring the Bishop Hatfield Girls School team, who asked Borras to be their nominated business mentor. If you would like to support the girls worthy cause please click HERE to donate, below is a short plea from the students.

“We are the Bishops Hatfield Girls School – Phoenix Group in the Welwyn Hatfield Dragons Apprentice Scheme.

We are raising money for the Willow Foundation because we think it is a fantastic cause. Willow is the only national charity working with seriously ill young adults aged 16 to 40 to fulfil uplifting and unforgettable Special Days. These Special Days enable them and their families to reconnect and refocus on each other while enjoying an activity of their choosing. A day for them, a day about them and a day that will create memories they will treasure forever. The charity was founded by Bob Wilson and his wife Megs, in memory of their daughter Anna who died of cancer aged just 31. Willow is totally reliant on the generosity of individuals to fund its work – please help us today”
