‘Team Stealth’, from Samuel Ryder Academy, were paired with the Armoral Hill Day Centre in Hall Place Close and the St Albans-based firm SA Law. The team was given £100 to set up a business and have to turn it into £1,000 or more by the end of the challenge.

The pupils: Mitchell Roem, Marco Jurukouski, Zahir Ahmed, Mohamed Mazari and Josh Berridge, worked on their business plan with their ‘Dragon’, Sophie Hudson from SA Law. They commissioned Rae Gray designs to create a logo for the day centre and aim to create a website to help the centre build brand awareness.

They are also holding a bingo night and raffle on Thursday, January 25, and tickets are available at

There is always something ominous about crows – they are after all carrion crows, the vultures of the bird world – always watching for scraps and weakness that might mean their next meal.
