Apprentice star Karthik could go into business with Kettering special needs school students
Apprentice star Karthik Nagesan could go into business with students from two Kettering special schools after launching a Christmas venture at the weekend.
Karthik, who lasted seven weeks on the hit BBC1 show before being fired by Lord Sugar, was on hand to join students and staff from Isebrook and Wren Spinney at The Studio in Lower Street on Saturday (December 3).
Both schools have been working hard over the last term building up a stock of items for the Christmas market.
Ise Print with its successful printing business offers personalised printing services on items such as Christmas sacks, mugs, coasters and T-shirts, and many more at highly competitive prices, while Wren Spinney students have produced a range of hand-crafted Christmas decorations and gifts for children and adults.
Now Karthik could team up with the schools to launch a range of mugs, coasters and T-shirts with his image on.
Wren Spinney’s assistant headteacher Joy Ward said: “He was so lovely and was great with the students.
“He’s been really supportive of what everyone here is doing.
“He is trying to put some business our way and we’re looking to put a plan together.
“We’re looking to see if we can make things like mugs, coasters and T-shirts with Karthik on out of Ise Print once there’s a business plan.”
