Pupils at Cranleigh Primary School have been taking part in a Young Apprentice-style business venture in aid of Surrey Air Ambulance.

Harry Hearn, 11, was appointed “managing director” of a company selling biscuits with a choice of toppings.

He and his colleagues Maeling, Anisha and Jimmy made a profit of £104 which they kindly donated to the life-saving charity.

H.B.J.B Biscuits was one of a number of small firms Year 6 pupils were involved in setting up and running at the Parsonage Road school.

In a letter to the Air Ambulance, Harry explained: “Our company is a biscuit company where people can order their biscuits and choose which topping they would like. Our price ranges from 50p to 60p.

“A 50p biscuit contains icing and a choice of three toppings and a 60p biscuit contains icing and a choice of five toppings. My team has made the decision that the profit from this product will go to Surrey Air Ambulance.”

Year 6 teacher Julia Greaves said the Young Enterprise venture was usually undertaken by secondary school pupils.

Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance works closely with local schools and provides a fascinating study subject for children of all ages.

As part of a rounded education, pupils can gain an insight into helicopters and clinical procedures in a number of different projects. To find out more go to www.kssairambulance.org.uk
