Starting in February 2017, Louder Than Life (LTL) will be out and about at various Primary Schools in the South Yorkshire region delivering a challenge that is linked to music and business.
And the company are delighted that 18-year-old Eve, the owner of bespoke bunting business Barmy, has agreed to become their ambassador for the exciting project.
A number of Barnsley Primary Schools are already involved and Paul Robson, LTL’s Enrichment Development Manager for the project, hopes that many others will follow their lead.
He said: “The challenge covers all aspects of business, but delivered in a fun, exciting and engaging way.
“The children get to design a product from scratch and touch on all areas of the ‘4ps’, including the Unique Selling Point of their design.
“We are delighted to announce that local Barnsley girl and owner of the successful business ‘Barmy’ Eve Lodge is our ambassador for the competition.
“We wanted someone who was young, inspiring and could relate to the project and as the winner of a number of business awards, including three in the Barnsley I Know I Can Big Challenge (IKIC) amongst her impressive CV, Eve certainly fitted all the criteria.”

She had started her business when aged just 14 and a student at Horizon College in Barnsley.
