Students Start T-Shirt Business In Memory Of Ella


10:08am 2nd July 2013

Teenage Entrepreneurs from Dorchester have started a business in memory of a local girl who died after a horse riding accident.

A group of students from Sunninghill School have been making t-shirts to sell as part of their 'Lions Lair' project, where local business holders will be judging their ideas - like TV's Dragon's Den.

All money raised will go to Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance who treated Ella Pallister, from Portesham, in January.

Wessex FM spoke to Gabriella Bailey and Anna Schwinge who are two of the five students involved in the business project. They explained why they had chosen to raise money in Ella's memory, "Ella was a former pupil at our school and she was also a friend of ours. And we want to raise money because it's(Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance) such a good cause, they rely on just public donations so the more we can do to help, the better."

"If anyone doesn't want to buy a t-shirt at the fayre, but wants to donate towards Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance, we have our own Just Giving page which anyone can donate money to. At the moment we've raised £135 that goes straight to the Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance."

T-shirts will be on sale at Sunninghill School's Summer Fayre this Friday (5th July). They're available in nine designs, and are targeted at children from 3 to 14. They're £5.99 each, or two for £10.
