Framlingham College present cheque to YoungMinds

Unknown-1We were pleased to welcome the Director of Fundraising at YoungMinds, Mr Chris Walker, who came all the way from Brighton. 

Mr Walker addressed the College during Monday morning’s assembly and gave us an enlightening talk about overcoming the stigma associated with mental health issues, and creating awareness that support is available to enable young people to deal with their problems. After his address he was presented with a cheque for £1,209.76 by Hugo Tomassi, whose moving presentation last term led to YoungMinds being voted Charity of the Term.

The funds were raised last term through various activities organised by the Charity Committee. These included Rock Night, the sale of Valentine roses, the Harlem Shake, the Cabaret Raffle, Non-Uniform Day and finally the whole school Easter Egg Hunt.
