Fi ve students from Mount Aspiring College presented their YoungEnterprise initiative to consumers across the country as part of a new virtual market last Saturday.
The event was organised by the Young Enterprise Trust to help students promote their ideas during the Alert Level 4 lockdown.
Students Emmanuel Nimmo, Josh Arthur, Fin McDonald, Seth Peters, and Romili Townsend were chosen to present their products alongside 12 other student enterprise groups.
The Year 13 students set up their business, Blokes, to raise money for men's mental health.
In order to achieve this, they created a moisturiser for men made with natural ingredients sourced from New Zealand based suppliers.
Emmanuel Nimmo, CEO of the company, said that men's mental health is a subject that is very close to the students' hearts.
“We are a group of five young blokes that go to Mount Aspiring College who are sick of the lack of support for men's mental health, with all of us having influential men in our lives who suffer from mental health issues in silence.
