FFEI actively engage in the local community and as part of this commitment we are supporting this year’s Dragons’ Apprentice Challenge in providing a Dragon Mentor to work with a team from John F Kennedy Catholic School in Hemel Hempstead, working closely with the designated charity.

The Dragons’ Apprentice challenge links teams of Year 12 “Apprentices” with local businesses and charities in a challenge to turn £100 into at least £1,000 or more in less than 4 months.

This is the third year the Challenge has been run in the district of Dacorum and last year cumulatively across the whole of Hertfordshire the Challenge raised over £83.500 for our community.

The team (Teamflash @teamflashhh) comprises 8 enthusiastic students who, during a busy A Level period, are voluntarily prepared to go that extra mile to further develop themselves and help benefit a Charity. Our charity is the RNIB which will receive all profits resulting from the Apprentices’ business activities.

Please follow their progress and encourage them in their endeavours
