A group of students are leading an anti-litter campaign in their community after winning a challenge.

Pupils at Cramlington Learning Village were crowned winners of the annual enterprise competition, the Real Business Challenge led by Coca-Cola European Partners (CCEP).

They went to the grand final in London as regional winners and went on to claim the top spot.

Entrants had been asked to draw up a new bus stop to promote litter awareness.

Their winning design will now be installed at three locations – Station Road, Seghill; and on two sites on Benton Lane, Longbenton – for the next two weeks.

They were also given a tour of CCEP’s manufacturing site in Morpeth while the school was awarded a 3D printer.

Now in its 12th year, the Real Business Challenge is designed to inspire and educate young people, helping them gain the skills they need to have a competitive edge in the job market.

Bill Muirhead, Senior Manager ‎Education Programmes at Coca-Cola European Partners, said: “Watching the students’ designs brought to life in their local communities is an exciting phase of the Real Business Challenge for all involved, and a fantastic way to showcase the hard work of all of the students.

“This year has been another successful year for the competition, and I would like to thank all those involved, from the anti-litter organisations and CCEP employees who act as mentors, to the students themselves.”
