Mosaic North West Enterprise Challenge Regional Final
Ravat & Ray Dental Care continue their long standing relationship with Mosaic, a network that inspires young people from deprived communities to realise their hidden talents and full potential. We recently provided goody bags for all the finalists that took part in the Mosaic North West Regional Final of the 2016 Enterprise Challenge competition, hosted generously by KPMG in Manchester. Which enabled Mosaic to reward students with prizes for their hard work on the Enterprise Challenge over the last year.
The winners were a team from Altrincham Grammar School for Girls. Their winning pitch was a very inspirational idea to use their school as a social meeting space to help combat loneliness in elderly people, in the local community. The team have now secured their place at the National Final.
‘Team Elevate’ beat stiff competition from teams from Parrs Wood High School in Didsbury, Ladybridge High School in Bolton, The Hathershaw School in Oldham and Levenshulme High School in Manchester with their idea for alleviating loneliness amongst elderly citizens. All finalists had already beaten hundreds of students from other schools in the North West to reach the final.
The competing teams pitched their ideas in a Dragons Den-style event to a prestigious panel of judges including Dean Rogers Govender, Dean of Manchester; Ahti Arshad, Director at Brooklyn Charles; Paul Heywood, partner at KPMG; Noor Ali, World Foods Manager at Morrisons; and Lord Lieutenant Warren Smith.
We would like to wish the North West finalists Team Elevate the best of luck in the national finals that will take place in London on 4thMay where they will compete against stiff competition and other winning schools from the West Midlands, South East, Yorkshire, London and Glasgow for the chance to become national champions.
