The Apprentice Challenge Contestants

Posted In Business

More like The Grinch than Santa, our very own Lord Sugar arrived for his first ‘firing’ on Monday.

He had set a demanding first task; candidates had to design and make bespoke Christmas cards for the Headmaster, the Deputy Headmaster and for the Bursar and they had to sell them at a profit. They had five days to do so.

Lord Sugar then asked them for feedback on their performance and their team-mates. The grilling was fun and very telling!

The task saw Team 1 raise £15, Team 2 raise £42 and Team 3 £13 and a total of £70 was given to help the Homeless in Maidstone.

The next challenge is now issued. Contestants have until 10th January to raise as much money for a charity of their choice. They also have four days to create a Tik Tok video to promote charity fundraising and use it to help them raise money. The video has to be made by Thursday 12th December.

We wish all our competitors the very best of luck.
