Dragon's Den Event - Solas Project

Amount Raised:


In May, Distilled took part in a 5 week Business Mentorship Programme with 5th class students from St Paul's Primary School in Smithfield.

The aim of this program is to support young people to make a successful transition into secondary school and take full advantage of their potential.

This culminated in a “Dragon’s Den” event where the students visited the Distilled offices to present their business ideas (and more importantly, a chance to see where their mentor’s work and to sit on the spinny chairs!)

Distilled made a donation of €5,000 to Solas project, which will fund 200 hours of face-to-face time in schools with pupils, delivering a range of programmes.
