Our pupils are raising funds through Jeans for Genes day, Children in Need and Young Minds this year. They are raising funds to send to the charities through their enterprise activities. The pupils would like to thank everyone who makes donations and supports their activities.
YoungMinds is the UK’s leading charity committed to improving the emotional wellbeing and mental health of children and young people. You can find out more information from their website: http://www.youngminds.org.uk/. One of our ex students is an ambassador for Young Minds.
Jeans for genes https://www.jeansforgenesday.org/ raises funds to support children and their families with genetic disorders: some of our pupils who access HOE have genetic disorders and we use it to find out more about how it affects them and their everyday lives.
Ellen MacArthur Cancer Trust https://www.ellenmacarthurcancertrust.org/ provides sailing activities for young people who have undergone treatment for cancer to build their confidence and self esteem. They provide the bridge between treatment and a young person seizing the future they may never imagined possible
