The Dragons Apprentice Challenge is run by CVS St Albans (Centre for Voluntary Service) . Over 80 ambitious students have taken up the Dragons’ Apprentice Challenge this year across St Albans and Harpenden; 11 different teams will compete over the next few months to increase their £100 start up cash into over £1000 by mid-February. There are 11 Teams of Year 12 students from schools across St Albans and Harpenden this year. The launch which was held on Tuesday 4th October and hosted by Loreto College, where the teams were matched with a Dragon and with a charity partner.
This is the first year that St Albans Soroptimists have been Dragons and we are delighted to be matched with St Albans Girls School (STAGS) and the charity Rennie Grove Hospice The Club has close links with the school and has supported the charity for many years. Soroptimist Jennie Redford said “I almost jumped for joy when our collaboration was announced”. The photo from the launch event includes the STAGS team with Soroptimist “Dragon” Jennie plus Gemma and Doreen from Rennie Grove Hospice.
We hope our Team will be successful this year in raising funds for Rennie Grove Hospice. Whatever the outcome it will be a great experience for everyone involved in this brilliant initiative. There will be an Awards Evening on 25th April 2017. For more information see the website www.dragonsapprenticechallenge.com
