World Mental Health Day
Thursday 10th October was Mental Health Awareness Day and the SU marked the day by supporting Young Minds’ theme of #HelloYellow. Students were asked to wear yellow, Student Reception was decorated with yellow bunting and balloons and turned into a nail bar at lunch time where students could support the cause by having their nails painted in two shades of the colour. There was a bake sale at break time, including the very appropriate lemon drizzle and pineapple tarts, which helped to raise money for the cause. Students were reminded, through the tutorial bulletin and the SU posters, who to contact in and outside of College if they needed any form of support. £116.75 was raised for the Young Minds charity whose mission is ‘leading the fight for a future where all young minds are supported and empowered, whatever the challenges.
