Waikato Diocesan Young Enterprise Group Earth Bags Ltd came away with three awards at last night's regional Lion Foundation Young Enterprise Scheme award's evening.  The group, who produce compostable planter bags, won the Sustainability and Growth Potential categories, as well as a special award from Xero -Thinking  Big.   They also finished second place overall.  In their thank you speech the girls made special mention of their mentor, Mr Ken Williamson, who was unable to attend the evening due to ill health. The team acknowledged the many hours of support he had given them.
