Entrepreneurial students start water cooler business
A group of young entrepreneurs from Burnley have started up their own water cooler business, with the help of a social enterprise scheme, with the aim of providing one of the campuses of their sixth form college with coolers. The students from Thomas Whitham Sixth Form will use the money they make to contribute to the building of a well in Zimbabwe. Not do the youngsters plan to get their water coolers into the building, but also sell a variety of other products, such as key rings, badges and reusable water bottles in order to increase their eventual funds. Having been planning and hosting events to promote the scheme, the students (know collectively as H2o) have held numerous competitions around the campus, including challenging teachers to partake in a competition to drink as much water as possible within a time limit.
