Rotary joins panel for Dragon's Den-style event at Ysgol Dinas Bran

* The panel for the Dragon's Lair event at Ysgol Dinas Bran.

Vale of Llangollen Rotary members took part in the panel for an event modelled on TV's Dragon's Den at Ysgol Dinas Bran.

Organised by Hope House Hospice, Dragon's Lair aimed to foster entrepreneurial spirit among local young people.

Dinas Bran prides itself on providing innovative education and includes an enterprise module in its curriculum in collaboration with the the hospice team. 

The module empowers year 10 students to work together in small teams on creating and operating a fundraising event. 

As part of the project students had the opportunity to 'pitch' their creative ideas to a panel of Dragons, making their cases for a £10 initial investment from Hope House.

A spokesperson for Vale of Llangollen Rotary said: "This collaboration exemplifies our commitment to fostering innovation, leadership, and community engagement, and underneath it a testament to how we embrace the opportunity to celebrate the young ones in our community.

"We feel privileged to have the opportunity to work so closely with the school and Hope House on developing the entrepreneurial spirit of our young and to celebrate how many wonderful young people live in our community. The experience demonstrated group after group how talented, creative and wonderful our youth are."
