Pupils from schools in Renfrewshire will be putting their entrepreneurial skills to good use by taking part in a Christmas trade fair.

The youngsters are gaining valuable experience of the business world through student-led companies that will be selling various products to seasonal bargain-hunters at Braehead shopping centre, in Renfrew, on Thursday, December 7.

They will set up shop in the central atrium on the upper floor from 4.30pm until 8.30pm.

The initiative is being organised by Young Enterprise Scotland and involves S5 and S6 pupils from eight schools in Renfrewshire, East Renfrewshire and Inverclyde.
