They have sold their wares at trade fairs to compete for places in the charity's Berkshire final.

Supported by the Maidenhead & District Chamber of Commerce, Year 12 students from schools in the Maidenhead, Slough and Windsor areas have taken their products to shopping centres.

The winner of the fair at the Nicholson Centre on January 11 was a team from Claires Court School in Maidenhead, selling dog accessories.

Pupils from Herschel Grammar School in Northampton Avenue, Slough won at Queensmere Observatory shopping centre on February 8 with their recycled denim ties.

They also won a business plan competition at Maidenhead Town Hall on January 29.

"This year the standard is very high," said Mike Miller, chairman of the chamber's education and training group.

The third trade fair will be held at Royal Shopping Centre in Windsor on March 8.
