TALENTED Poole teenagers have come up with an idea they trust will brighten the days of travellers and students.

Fresha is the brainchild of a group of 10 sixth formers at St Edward’s RC/CE VA School in Oakdale, Poole which they hope will reap rewards.

The Young Enterprise team Benefice, has dreamed up a morning hygiene kit consisting of a compact kit of a folding toothbrush, mini toothpaste and facial wipes, with a mirror set into the lid.

“We had 12 ideas to start with and had to decide on one,” said project manager Rachael Whatley, 18.

“We were originally going to do a night kit but after doing market research discovered there was more of a need for a morning kit.”

The group is seeking a sponsor to get their kit in its 12 x 8cm box into production and onto the shelves.

“Our target market is hotels and students,” said Joe Stewart, 17, but they can see a range of other users including party and festival-goers.

They received help from Bournemouth University with research.

The 16-18-year-olds have already got through to the Dorset final of the Young Enterprise competition and are hoping to beat the seven other competitors and make the national final.

The young entrepreneurs including Milo Pearson, 17, Sean Forryan, 17, Sophie Mitchell, 18, Jack Cluett, 17, James Webster, 17, Anya Wyatt, 17, Connor Tierney, 17, and Hannah Whatley, 16, are hoping their product will “go global”.
