Budding entrepreneurs get creative to raise money for Wishaw Kids charity
Two young aspiring entrepreneurs got creative to raise money for a charity for the children of Wishaw.
Rebecca McCallum and Madison Torrance decided to form loom groups with the goal of raising money for the Les Hoey MBE DreamMaker Foundation.
The girls, both aged 11, got down to business and spent a day creating the stripes in various colors.

They then put their selling skills to the test by selling the groups to family, friends and neighbors in Morningside.
Rebecca’s proud mom Lynsey was overjoyed to see the girls put their plan into action.
She told Lanarkshire Live: “I think the two girls are little entrepreneurs in the making.
“They always think of different things. I think they have a taste for it and they are very creative.
“They designed the loom bands and made them in different colors before they sold them. Most people where we live seem to have one now.
The Charity King Les even got a chance to model some of the models himself when the girls and Lynsey stopped by to donate the hard-earned £ 60 donation to the DreamMaker Foundation.
Les added, “We are very grateful to Madison and Rebecca for their kindness.
“The girls did a great job and we are so glad they chose our charity.
“I was delighted the girls designed one for me in DreamMaker colors. It was great.”
