Enterprising teenagers pop up in town with Christmas shop

Dozens of enterprising teenagers will be taking over a shop in Liberty Wharf next week to sell their Christmas wares.

The group of 40 from the Prince's Trust are running a pop-up shop in Unit 11a of Liberty Wharf on Friday 16 December, selling a range of gifts they've made themselves.

The 40 young people from secondary schools and further education are part of the Trust's Achieve Club - a personal development programme for teenagers aged 13 to 19 to gain skills and confidence.

Assistant Youth Worker Anna Peters said: “The young people have been working with a budget to plan, design and make the items they will be selling in the pop-up shop. They have chosen to support three local charities so half of their profits will go to Philip's footprints, Jersey Cancer Relief and Holidays for Heroes. The remaining 50% will be used by the Prince's Trust groups to fund activities for the young people taking part in the programme.”

Education Minister Deputy Rod Bryans said: “This has been a real team effort and is a great project for young people to be involved in. I hope people go along, support their efforts and find some Christmas presents.”

You can find out more about Achieve as well as all the other Prince's Trust programmes at the pop-up shop which is open from 10:00 to 16:00.
