STUDENTS have used the credit crunch to inspire a project for the Young Enterprise programme - and made a profit.

A group of pupils at Newstead Wood School for Girls, Orpington, won awards for the Most Innovative Product for their Credit Crunch Cookbook and the Best Overall Company in the Bromley regional finals.

The 18 Year 12 students are currently in negotiations with a publisher and a chain of bookstores for their cook book which features good value and healthy recipes with names inspired by recent events, such as the 'Lehman Meringue Pie'.

The company, named Hera after the Greek Goddess, have also produced other titles including their Cultural Delicacies, with recipes from 18 different countries representing the broad range of backgrounds of the students in the group, and Munchies, a recipe and colouring book for young children.

The team are now to go on to participate in the South East London Regional Finals of the Young Enterprise programme.
