A GROUP of proud secondary school pupils have exploited their love for St Albans by creating brand new T-shirts celebrating the city for a business competition.

The team of 11 Beaumont School sixth-formers are competing in the Young Enterprise scheme, a worldwide competition whereby groups of 16 and 17-year-olds must start up their own business, create a unique product and make as much profit as possible.

Beaumont team MUNDO - Spanish for 'world' - have decided to turn their pride in St Albans into a product, creating special I Heart ST A T-shirts designed to reflect the I Heart NY t-shirts that are so popular across the world.

Marketing deputy for MUNDO Sophie Boden said it was an exciting product: "Teenagers living in St Albans, such as ourselves, are really into their St Albans-worshipping and these T-shirts are the perfect way to show how much you love the city. The heart is even filled in with the image of the St Albans flag!"

MUNDO hoped to start selling their T-shirts last Friday, but Sophie said they've suffered their first set-back: "Unfortunately the T-shirt printing company didn't include VAT when they charged us, so we have to raise an extra £40 pronto! At the moment we're trying to persuade the district council to let us raise the funds by holding a sponsored duck race in Verulamium Park."

MUNDO's I Heart ST A T-shirts cost £10 and to pre-order yours or to find out more about the company, visit www.mundo-uk.com
