HCS runners raise funds for mental health charity Mind
A group of Hereford Cathedral School pupils and staff have raised over £1,000 for mental health charity Mind in March.
Spearheaded by Sixth Former Olivia T, the HCS team have been running a mile a day throughout the month as part of Mind’s 27 27 challenge. The campaign aims to raise awareness of university students’ mental health struggles – 27% report suffering with depression and anxiety whilst in higher education.
Olivia commented: "I feel incredibly chuffed at the response of the pupils, teachers and parents. The support and dedication has been inspiring throughout. I am very proud of everyone who took part, thank you to everyone who got involved."
Staff and boarders from Wilmot House have been a big part of the effort, and together have completed more than 500 laps of the boarding house grounds. If you would like to sponsor them, please click here.
