Entier’s Fresh Olives apprentices have completed a competition to raise money for Scotland’s national children’s charity, Children 1st, by raising an incredible £23,000.

Team Fresco raised the cash as part of Dragon’s Glen - Scotland’s entrepreneurial challenge for businesses - and took home second place from the awards ceremony in Edinburgh on April 20.

The team worked religiously over a period of just six months to raise this fantastic amount by selling raffle tickets to win six luxury food an drink hampers worth £1,500.

With contributions from a network of suppliers, the raffle prize was a huge success and fundraising efforts ocntinued including a car wash to further boost the total.

Peter Bruce, CEO of Entier said of the effort: “I am incredibly proud of the efforts of the young people within our organisation.”
