West Bridgford School

West Bridgford School has been an inspiring supporter and fundraiser for us.

West Bridgford School

West Bridgford School raised an impressive £2,100 for YoungMinds throughout the academic year.

They have hosted their own non-uniform day, cake sale, raffle and many other events.

On top of all this, teachers Dr Hume and Mrs Bradbury are also running the Manchester Marathon for us.

A group of year 10 students together with their science teacher, Dr Hume, decided that more young people needed to know about the mental health services available to them and they also wanted to help lift the stigma attached to mental health.

YoungMinds was presented as a charity to support at the school council, and with students and staff all in agreement that mental health and wellbeing was a top priority, Year 10 won their bid hands down. 

The key message for the students to take away was 'it's ok to talk about mental health and that help is out there'.

Our mission was to raise funds for YoungMinds and to make sure our students knew where to access help. The fundraising day really helped start the ball rolling in a fun and interactive way. We will continue to support our students and hopefully make sure they all smile.

Support Our Work

YoungMinds exists so that young people have the strongest possible voice in improving their mental health. We need your help to make sure that voice is heard.

The amount of times I’d tried to break out of this shell, talk about ‘I’m feeling a bit down’, ‘I’m feeling a bit scared’, I couldn’t do it. And now I can do it openly.
