New countywide drugs logo designed by students
AN anti-drugs logo designed by Suffolk students for a competition has been unveiled.
The new countywide ‘tackling drugs’ logo was designed by students from Castle Manor Business and Enterprise College in Haverhill and selected as the winner of Dragons’ Den style competition last November.
Designed by four pupils from the school, the logo has now been unveiled at Endeavour House in Ipswich and will be on show in the entrance for the next two weeks.
Year 11 students Leigh Staples, Tom Hickmott, Callum Harty and Ainsley Richards won over the panel with their strap line, “Don’t let drugs wreck you”.
The concept of their logo reflects the image of a life tower - showing building blocks stacked on top of each other. Using the idea of a swinging wrecking ball, the team aimed to show how drugs ruin lives.

In November, five teams from schools across Suffolk were shortlisted for the competition, titled Project X, but the Dragons only invested in one idea.
The panel of Dragons’ who selected the winning design included Simon Ash, chief constable of Suffolk Constabulary, Simon Clegg, chief executive of Ipswich Town Football Club, Michael Pritchard, a successful Dragons’ Den entrepreneur, and county councillor Rae Leighton, portfolio holder for public protection.
